Microsoft will license the rights to Unix technology from SCO Group, a move that could impact the battle between Windows and Linux in the market for computer operating systems.
I thought April was last month.
Seriously, though. SCO is pretty much running around causing problems in hopes that someone will buy them. Will Microsoft license the technology and integrate some source code into Windows? The whole SCO thing hurts my head, so I have no idea how to read this. Speaking of hurting my head, check out this paragraph from the article:
AT&T sold the Unix intellectual property to Novell Networks, which in turn sold it to the Santa Cruz Operation. Caldera International, a seller of Linux, then acquired from SCO the Unix rights and two SCO products, OpenServer and UnixWare. Then last year, Caldera changed its name to SCO Group to reflect the fact that most of its revenue came from its SCO business and not from the Linux products.
The whole thing confuses me.
