SCO identifies Linux licensee

The SCO Group, which claims ownership to the Unix operating system,
identified on Monday a company that has agreed to sign a license to
use Linux.

EV1Servers.net, a Houston-based company that hosts Web sites for
clients and a division of Everyones Internet, signed a deal with SCO
for running thousands of Linux servers without facing legal
consequences from SCO. EV1Servers.net didn't immediately respond to a
request for comment.

SCO spokesman Blake Stowell declined to say how much EV1Servers.net
paid but said the arrangement covered the "vast majority" of about
20,000 servers, and therefore got a high-volume discount on the $699
per single-CPU server that SCO asks.
