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."
