To Russia, with Love

A new press release from SCO is always news at Groklaw. And when it announces that Darl McBride is heading to Russia to share the stage with Kevin Mitnik, well, how can I keep it from you? It jumps from News Picks to full coverage.

Mr. McBride will be talking about Unix and how it is the "preferred choice for systems that must run flawlessly" and expressing SCO's "continued commitment to the Russian and emerging markets". McBride is quoted as saying, "The application server environment of choice for mission-critical communications and computing infrastructure in fast-growing, emerging markets is UNIX," said McBride.

Hmm. That or I'm thinking maybe GNU/Linux for the emerging market, it being free and Free and all. Also, no one sues you later over contract interpretations. You know, GNU/Linux, like Google and Amazon run on. And Wall Street, speaking of mission critical.

Can you imagine if Eben Moglen announced he was heading to Russia to push Free Software? What would the headlines be like? There does seem to be an imbalance in the media universe.


Darl McBride, President and CEO, The SCO Group to Deliver Keynote Entitled 'The UNIX Community Makes BRIC Tick' at Interop Moscow

LINDON, Utah, Feb. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The SCO Group, Inc. ("SCO") (Nasdaq: SCOX), a leading provider of UNIX(R) software technology for distributed, embedded and network-based systems, today announced that Darl McBride, SCO's president and CEO will deliver a keynote address at Interop Moscow, June 23 at 12:00 p.m. The conference and keynote will take place at the Crocus Exposition Center.

In his address entitled, "The UNIX Community Makes BRIC Tick," McBride will present a thought-provoking examination of the current and future state of IT requirements and solutions in key emerging and fast-growing markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC). He will also demonstrate an exciting new technology that enables systems and solutions providers in the UNIX community to deliver the lowest possible total cost of ownership across a wide range of solutions, from single-purpose kiosks to the largest shared servers.

"The application server environment of choice for mission-critical communications and computing infrastructure in fast-growing, emerging markets is UNIX," said McBride. "And now, UNIX is also leading the way in the next generation of advanced solutions, including touch-less commerce, lights-out operations, and wireless digital services."

Interop Moscow is the largest corporate IT exhibition in Russia. It focuses on business-to-business solutions and attracts a large international audience. SCO will exhibit in booth number 089 throughout the show. SCO has had a presence in Russia for many years and Interop Moscow presents an ideal platform for SCO to demonstrate its continued commitment to the Russian and emerging markets.

UNIX is the product of thirty-plus years of development work by some of the brightest software engineers in the industry. Together, they have helped make high-end computers more powerful, economical, reliable, and manageable. UNIX is the preferred choice for systems that must run flawlessly with little supervision, constant up-time and reliability even in the most demanding computing environments. Systems from The SCO Group and its UNIX partners, including Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard and numerous others enable the operation of the data and voice networks, power grids, financial markets, banking networks, transportation and logistics systems that are making significant growth possible in the BRIC markets.

McBride is among several other keynote speakers at Interop Moscow including Steve Wozniak, founder of Apple, Marten Mickos, CEO of MySQL, Jake MacLeod, Principal VP and CTO, Bechtel, Kevin Mitnick, Mitnick Security Consulting LLC, and Bruce Perens, VP Sourcelabs and co-founder of Open Source Initiative.
