Anyone heard about the people that made Unix wanting to charge companies that give out Linux for free?

Heh, it's far too late to ask for that. The unix kernel has been changed far too much..

Yeah Sco who distribute Unix based systems are pushing lawsuits against ibm, novell and debian at the moment I believe.

good I hope they win so linux gets phased out and people stop whining. heck, linus torvalds himself said he "borrowed" some SCO code to "get him started" in a rare interview in a magazine I read.

OSes need to be unified or no application will work on all and for enterprise scenarios it will lead to higher pain and lots of loss and higher TCO. lots of it!!!

maintenence costs are much higher.

not everyones gonna have time to enter several commands in a terminal to get a simple thing done. lots of people dotn have time for linux and just wanna get stuff doen quicker. specially businesses. and also gives them too much stress to worry about maintianing kernals and no central point of adminstration for large numbers of desktops. tried redhat in enperprise applicatons and it fails misreably. and installing a linux based enterprise app accross more than 1000 systems can be a real pain if those 'grabber" tools in linux dont work with your network.

I can present lots of examples here but im too tired.

The only problem with what your saying is that sco did not own the unix source code in 1992 when the first disros started to appear, so how can linus torvalds have borrowed it from sco? Novell owned the unix source code rights at that time and then sold them to sco later. Plus sco are being financially crippled by these lawsuits they are chasing, so they'll probaly go bust before anything happens, plus they're up against IBM who are much, mcuh larger than Sco.

i agree but no one has time for any maintainance. thats why we hire custodians to clean up the hallways. we hire system administrators to maintain the network. the fact that there exists companies that use linux smoothly shows that there are businesses that can manage with linux.

then set them up properly. as it is, do not blame the os for faulty software. do you curse windows for the deficiencies of word?
