SCO Still Providing Linux Source Under GPL
However, SCO is still, as of this writing (May 22), providing Linux source code. When I wrote the review of SCO Linux 4 (see the June 2003 issue of Linux Journal, page 78), SCO provided me with a temporary account on their update service so I could review it. I still have a test computer with SCO Linux installed on it, and I used apt-get to download the Linux kernel from the SCO apt server (linuxupdate.sco.com). I downloaded and installed the "kernel-source#2.4.19.SuSE-106@i586_2.4.19.SuSE-106_i586.rpm" package.
The Linux kernel is licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
SCO has stated, "SCO continues to honor our contractual relationships with customers; and will continue to support our Linux customers."
Steve Hasting first used UNIX on actual paper teletypes. He enjoys bicycling, music, petting his cat and making his Linux computers do new things.
