SCO Selective About Linux Licensees
Caldera
The Almighty Buck
Posted by CowboyNeal on Wed Oct 22, '03 01:17 PM
from the big-bills-only dept.
cdunworth writes "According to the IDG news wire, SCO is now telling the vast hoardes of willing new Linux licensees that, unless you are a Fortune 1000 company, you can't buy a Linux license. Not yet. Why the delay? In return for your $699 payment, they don't have to send you anything more than a piece of paper." At least home users of Linux can take solace in knowing that they don't have to pay up yet. It doesn't always pay to have deep pockets.
