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.
