In a recent newsgroup post
(link dead, sorry)
, Brian White opined (with regard to Open Server 6):
Exactly. As I have said before, no matter how good OSR6 is, it's far too late. This is the OS SCO needed to introduce in 1997 or even earlier, when they still had customers and resellers hanging in there. Most of the horses are long gone from the barn, and the only ones left are the ones that prefer the dependability of a steady diet to foraging elsewhere. But now SCO's going to change the feed mix, and rather drastically. Across the river is all kinds of free food, albeit each with its own set of problems, but hey - FREE. Who wants to pay for pain? That is, if your are going to have pain no matter what, it sure as hell seems stupid to pay for it.
And that's Brian's point. Read the rest, it's worth the click.
