Caldera is splitting into three different companies (two of which remain as wholly-owned subsidiaries of Caldera, Inc.). The new companies are "Caldera Thin Clients, Inc." which will deal in embedded systems (set-top boxes, kiosks, ...), and "Caldera Systems, Inc.," under Ransom Love, which will take on the Linux business. It's not immediately clear what the parent company will do, other than "wholly own" the others. Details can be found in Caldera's press release.
Pick announced the release of D3 Linux v.7.1 with Red Hat Linux v.5.1. The integration of Pick with the glibc version of Linux has been requested by many customers for a while now and will make many people happy.

Software AG's version of DCOM for Linux is now available for download, you may get it at their web site. While this is a nice thing to have, at least for some people, it is worth noting that this is hardly free software. The release is binary only, of course, and the license forbids commercial use or redistribution.
