SCO selling Linux licenses online

Controversial software seller the SCO Group has launched an online-ordering site for companies that want to use the open-source Linux operating system
with SCO's blessing.

The Web site debuted quietly last week. It enables companies that use Linux to purchase a license that covers SCO's Unix System V, portions of which
SCO claims were illegally incorporated into the source code of Linux.

Full licenses cost $699 per server central processing unit (CPU) or $199 for a desktop PC that runs Linux. An annual license costs $149 per server CPU
or $49 per desktop PC.
