SCO Continues to Struggle Against Linux in Q3

Server software maker and mobile application development tool wannabe SCO Group Inc yesterday reported its financial results for its fiscal third quarter ended July 31, and once again the company's sales were in decline due to competitive pressures. And once again, the company's top brass singled out Linux as the main culprit that is putting a damper on its revenues.

In the quarter, SCO said that it booked $7.4m in sales, a 21% drop from the prior year's third quarter. Product sales, which were comprised mostly of OpenServer and UnixWare Unix operating system licenses, accounted for $6.2m in sales and dropped by 22% year-over-year.
