SCO Using Web Site for Linux Tax

SCO Using Web Site for Linux Tax

The SCO Group has taken to peddling its Linux license off its Web site, which means it's finally gotten its EULA written down.

The company is offering paid-up licenses ranging from $699 to $4,999 depending on the number of CPUs and has added new annual licenses that run $149 to $1,079 also depending on how many CPUS are in the server.

A paid-up desktop license is $199 and a renewable one is $49.

If SCO's enemies and the lawyers ranged against it are right it's merely an exercise in wishful thinking.
