SCO's hometown paper sees bad things coming

Filed under
OS

SCO's Linux and IBM lawsuits haven't been going well, and the stock market's beginning to notice. SCO's hometown newspaper, the Salt Lake City Tribune, notes that SCO's stock has fallen from its October 2003 high of $20.50 per share to an August 1 close of $2.28.

It's actually far, far worse than that. In May 2002, before SCO launched its lawsuit against IBM, the company had a 4-to-1 reverse stock split. In other words, every four shares of existing Caldera stock were converted into one share, Therefore, if you owned Caldera stock in April 2002, your current shares are worth an all-time low of about 57 cents a share.

No one who owned shares in the beleaguered Unix company went on record with their thoughts about the company's future business prospects.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
