Caldera feeling frisky?
Posted on: 01/11/2000 04:58 PM

Hot on the heels of their settlement with Microsoft, Caldera is filing for an IPO. I found this at The Register.
Caldera will use the Microsoft settlement money primarily for acquisitions, development and marketing, according to Lyle Ball, VP of marketing and communications at Lineo, the Caldera Inc operating company concerned with embedded clients based on Linux (Embedix) and DR-DOS. There has been a strategic move to keep the Microsoft litigation in Caldera Inc and away from product areas, so that operational matters were not affected. Ball drew particular attention to Microsoft having settled "right before a jury trial". Meanwhile Caldera Systems will continue with its Open Linux distribution, which should receive considerable publicity shortly because Caldera filed its S1 IPO registration statement with the SEC yesterday.
