More Project Monterey Evidence - Caldera and AIX 5L
Saturday, April 30 2005 @ 04:23 PM EDT

An anonymous reader has found a 2001 Caldera press release still on SCO's website. For those who are new, Caldera later changed its name to The SCO Group. I think it is of value to support Kurt Wall's recollection that Caldera's Ransom Love backed AIX 5L, even after Project Monterey was over and thought it would benefit his company. The press release has a subhead, "OpenLinux Server 64 to Supplement AIX 5L," and it says this:

Caldera’s 64-bit Linux offering complements its recently announced AIX 5LTM technology – a UNIX system solution developed with IBM® for Itanium based systems. The combination of AIX 5L with Linux affinity feature and OpenLinux Server 64 provide the industry with the most complete suite of platforms to deploy Linux solutions on Itanium based processors.

Caldera describes itself as "the global leader 'Unifying UNIX with Linux for Business'." Nowadays I'd describe Caldera, now calling itself the SCO Group, as the global leader in saying you can't unify Linux with UNIX, but that was then and this is now. What changed? I'd say it's the management of Caldera, now SCO.

OpenLinux Server 64 to Supplement AIX 5L

OREM, UT—June 7, 2001— Caldera International Inc. (Nasdaq: CALD), the global leader “Unifying UNIX with Linux for Business,” today announced the availability of its OpenLinux Server 64 preview, a fully functional snapshot of 64-bit Linux for Intel® ItaniumTM-based systems.
