SCO OpenServer 5.0.7 v is here……everybody run!

Seriously? Are you kidding me? SCO OpenServer 5.0.7 v. What a load of ****. Why in the heck would anyone ever want to use another SCO product ever again?

After SCO adopted the practice of suing companies as a business model years ago, they have had nothing but egg on their face in the IT industry. I have had the “pleasure” of dealing with SCO based servers and all I can say is I hate them. Anything and everything anyone has ever done on a SCO box I have always encouraged people to move to a different vendor.

Now SCO is stating that if you get 5.0.7 it’s virtualization friendly. I’m sure it is, but the parent company sure isn’t friendly. Their claims have always seemed preposterous to me and I can’t believe that they actually think anyone is going to use their sorry excuse for an operating system going forward.

SCO, you alienated any customers you might have had left a long time ago when you started suing everyone. I don’t think anyone in the IT community has any respect left for you anymore.
