Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

SCO is ready to burst out of its chrysalis as a fully formed Linux company, thanks to a deal with SuSE to help with installation projects. The deal means SCO consultants will now push SuSE Linux services and offer planning advice to corporate users looking at possible Linux roll outs. There's nothing quite like hoping on a bandwagon to keep your own momentum going, but analysts are praising SCO's volte face, according to a report on CNET's news.com. Where once SCO was Linux-hostile, it now has agreements with three key distributors of the open source OS: Caldera, TurboLinux and now SuSE. Mind you, as an investor in Caldera and TurboLinux (and also in LinuxMall) SCO can be expected to not just hop on the bandwagon, but to take a turn at the wheel too. ® See also: SuSE, MandrakeSoft to promote Linux NC architecture SCO unleashes Tarantella for Linux Sun, SCO, Novell, Citrix put bucks into Caldera
