So, SCO is back? But what's changed since the name dissolved into Caldera? Rapidly expanding markets for proprietary UNIX? Hardly. And are the issues that beset SCO any less severe now than they were? Not likely.

SCO may have a profitable niche, but this rebranding and posturing hardly marks the glorious return of Big UNIX.

Thank you, kind sir, for presenting this information in an even, unbiased fashion. I can only hope others in the Linux community read this and think for a minute before reacting negatively. The name change really was the right thing to do...
