Ahead of any auction of its assets, SCO has doubled the price of older versions of its OpenServer and UnixWare operating systems so it can "continue to focus on upgrading and maintaining the latest versions of SCO Unix."
The current versions of OpenServer 6 and UnixWare 7.1.4 will maintain their current pricing.
The tags on OpenServer 5.0.6 and earlier versions and UnixWare 7.1.3 and earlier will increase two-fold.
And starting March 6, SCO will implement a 20% price increase for trade-ins and upgrades to OpenServer 5.0.7.
It says upgrades to UnixWare 7.1.4 from version 7.1.1 will change to match upgrade pricing from UnixWare 7.1.2 and UnixWare 7.1.3. Upgrades from OpenServer 5.0.6 to OpenServer 6 will also be changed to match upgrade pricing from OpenServer 5.0.7.
It said it was committed to extending "the lifecycle of older releases as long as we can in order to protect the investment our partners and customers have made in older versions of our operating platforms."
