SCO To Put Most UNIX Assets Up For Auction

SCO is going to put most of its UNIX assets up for auction, according to this article.  Will there be somebody who’ll step in and continue supporting the products and the customers?

If I had lots of money in my pocket, I would probably buy the assets and see what can be done with the products.  Their UNIX is somewhat a direct descendant of the original UNIX created at Bell Labs.  It would be interesting to dissect it and see how it ticks compared to other UNIX and UNIX-like operating systems.  Moreover, it would be of historical value.

Anyway, that’s just a thought.

Also, I wonder what’s going on with the Solaris/OpenSolaris issue.
