Caldera Acquires Big Chunk Of SCO
Posted by Hemos on Wed Aug 02, '00 06:38 AM
from the expansion-through-co-option dept.
It came across the wire today that Caldera Systems is buying a big chunk of SCO. Caldera is buying SCO's Server Software and Professional Service Divisions from SCO, giving SCO 28% of the company. As well, one of Caldera's major investors is loaning $18 million to SCO, who will be keeping their Tarantella Divison - the press release has the other statistics in mind-numbing detail. The company is being renamed from Caldera Systems to Caldera, Inc. and Ransom Love[?] (who I think should win coolest CEO name) will remain as CEO.
