Caldera's Love rails at Monterey ‘misinformation’

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Caldera CEO Ransom Love has blamed inaccurate press reports for the confusion for muddying the waters of Project Monterey.

"You've seen some misinformation about that. There's an opportunity for Project Monterey's scalability on IA-64," said Love. "Officially, Project Monterey is going to continue and is going to continue in some form."

But what form? We'll have a better idea later in the week, but as we surmised the port is complete, the codename has been subsumed into AIX, as AIX 5L, so it's a fair bet that it will be AIX5L on IA-64, rather than AIX 5L for Power. Officially SCO and Caldera - which of course won't complete the merger for a few weeks yet -won't say.

IBM's Monterey page still says "IBM migrates Unix to Monterey" ... although it's become a clear that the Monterey brand has lost out to the AIX brand. And that's about it, really.

Ransom tried to reassure the audience - which compromised many of SCO's traditional resellers and partners - that they had a central place under the new management.

"Why would we buy to destroy what we buy?" he asked.

Caldera will show the Cosmos management framework it debuted at LinuxWorld last week at Forum.
Love said Linux needed better networking and technical support than it had today, and that's what the combined Caldera/SCO would try and offer. He denied there was an intention to create a "SuperNOS" and would continue to support multiple kernels.

Love opened the platform to questions. "When will you turn a profit?" yelled a voice from the back of the foggy quarry.

"Hey - I've gotta go now," replied Love. And he was gone. ®
