The Santa Cruz Operation (SCO) has joined the swelling ranks of Linux supporters and become a member of the Linux International developer and user group.
At its SCO Forum developers conference in Santa Cruz this week, the company pledged to introduce binary compatibility with the freeware Unix operating system within the next twelve months, which means Linux applications will be able to run on its own Unixware operating system after a recompile.
Peter Walker, SCO?s director of marketing strategy, said the company did not see Linux as a threat because it was not really a commercial product yet, but when it did take off it would be used more on workstations than on servers, SCO?s core market.
He added that interest in Linux among the developer community would also help boost the size of the overall Unix market.
