" The Ransom Love interview, CEO of Caldera at the time, shows that Caldera had a different motive in purchasing Santa Cruz, aka oldSCO, namely it was intereset in Santa Cruz's resellers channel. This falsifies the above assertion. "
No, i never said that Caldera had that intention. What i said was that when the NEW SCO was incorporated (the name changed from Caldera to SCO) it was already with the intension of delivering the SCO source campaingn...
I dont know no one personaly but i belive Ransom Love had a completely different idea, and was unjustly removed...
And even if i'm wrong and was not "Darl&Cª" who finneshed the deal, i make no delusions, because no senior manager makes **such a mistake** of resorting to a strategy (like the SCO source) to make another company rich. Because if "SCO source" could ever had been such a clear shot, as "Darl&Cª" makes belive, other much bigger institutions like Sun or even IBM, would had pick it up long before Caldera. I repeat:
"When **(new)SCO** was incorporated its management surely knew this situation. It was a BAD BUSINESS from any angle you look at it, and from the very begining. I dont belive that Darl&Cª had ever the defect of being stupids."
... unless there was another business after all... And that would VERY VERY hardly be the substancial grow of the OpenServer/Unixware in a relatively short time(belive no one sensible would ever bet a cent on it, in the 200x IT clima), short enough for not depleting SCO with long intense R&D costs. Pump & Dump can only be very short lived, and Darl&Cª are not facing jail and probably never will, because with *governance* allowance businesses have trended to become immoral (Enron, Worlcom...SCO)
Sorry but you dont invalidate the question of who/What made "Darl&Cª" to jump out off the cliff.
