SCO-Caldera deal brings high-end features to Linux
Author: JT Smith
"Linux will acquire features better suited for high-end use as a result of Caldera Systems' pending acquisition of technology assets from Santa Cruz Operation. Linux is gradually growing up, acquiring features of the Unix operating system on which it's based and that SCO sells. One of the features it's still missing, though, is "clustering," which variously means one computer can take over for another that fails or that a job can be shared among a number of servers in a group."
