Caldera Systems Files For IPO

rambone IPO or not, Caldera will not last linux wars (97 comments)

Caldera really hasn't created a meaningful presence in the market the way RedHat has, or made a full-on dramatic embrace of linux the way Corel has.

Caldera is the wallflower of linux distrobutions - it has pathetic marketing, a weak brand, and very little in the way of a compelling value add. I fail to see how Caldera is better suited for "business" than any other distribution.

Whether you like RedHat or not, you have to commend the way they have created a huge buzz around their brand - they've made themselves synonomous with linux.
