SCO's February MORs and SCO Partner News
Thursday, April 01 2010 @ 11:29 PM EDT

SCO's Monthly Operating Reports for February are now filed. And Hans Bayer, now indisputably VP for Worldwide Sales, sent a Spring 2010 letter to SCO Partners, telling them how happy SCO was to finally be getting its day in court and announcing "the release of OpenServer 5.0.7 for Hyper-V which now allows customers to run their applications in either the Hyper-V or VMware environment with full support from SCO."

I see on page 12 of SCO Operation's February MOR that SCO retained Wasatch Economics in January. Christine Botosan has a "consulting engagement" with them, since 2009. For all the good it did SCO at trial. They also hired Cursed Network, and here's what they do:

Cursed Network Corporation offers small business the capability and availability of an enterprise-level IT department with outsourcing affordability. Our extensive network of suppliers and specialists gives us the ability to recommend, acquire, and maintain nearly any computer solution imaginable.
So, who provides the "full support" Bayer wrote about, SCO or Cursed Network?

Say, don't forget April 7 is the next hearing, starting at 3 PM, in the bankruptcy in Delaware. I hope some of you can attend. It's the hearing about Darl McBride's offer to buy the mobility business.

Here are the MORs:

04/01/2010 - 1100 - Debtor-In-Possession Monthly Operating Report for Filing Period as of 2/28/10 (The SCO Group, Inc.; 07-11337) Filed by Edward N. Cahn, Chapter 11 Trustee for The SCO Group, Inc., et al.. (Fatell, Bonnie) (Entered: 04/01/2010)

04/01/2010 - 1101 - Debtor-In-Possession Monthly Operating Report for Filing Period as of 2/28/10 (SCO Operations, Inc.; 07-11338) Filed by Edward N. Cahn, Chapter 11 Trustee for The SCO Group, Inc., et al.. (Fatell, Bonnie) (Entered: 04/01/2010)

And here's the letter to partners:

****************************

Spring 2010

Dear SCO Partners,

We appreciate your continued loyalty to SCO’s UNIX business as we partner together in providing customers with critical enterprise business solutions.

As an organization we continue to work with the bankruptcy trustee to identify ways to ensure SCO’s solvency and continued dedication to our customers, partners and the UNIX platform. We have made significant progress in reducing costs and continue to work to provide long term solutions for our customers and partners.

We are pleased with the increasing interest and adoption of our UNIX virtualization products as customers find greater opportunities for cost-effective growth and maintenance in this growing technology.

We are pleased to announce the release of OpenServer 5.0.7 for Hyper-V which now allows customers to run their applications in either the Hyper-V or VMware environment with full support from SCO. More information about this key release is available in this newsletter.

As you may know, last August the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit overturned on appeal the primary negative rulings against SCO from the Federal District Court regarding our lawsuit with Novell. We are pleased that we are finally getting our day in court.

Again we thank you for your continued support. We appreciate your dedication and loyalty. If you have questions or concerns, I encourage you to contact your SCO sales representative or alternatively you can contact us at [redacted].

Best Regards,

Hans Bayer
Vice President
World Wide Sale
