SCO sets Linux license prices

— 2:19 AM on August 6, 2003

SCO has released a price list for its Linux licenses that makes Windows look reasonably-priced.

The promotional fee for the client (desktop) license is $199.

The promotional fees for server licenses are:
Right to use SCO IP in a Linux distribution
Promotional License Fee
with 1 CPU $699
with 2 CPUs $1,149
with 4 CPUs $2,499
with 8 CPUs $4,999
Additional single CPU $749

The promotional license fee for embedded devices is $32 per device.

If many Linux users actually purchase a license, this could be a huge cash-grab for SCO. However, with Red Hat challenging the validity of SCO's intellectual property claims, I wonder if most Linux users will hold off on shelling out a license until SCO is at least forced to prove its case.
