There's SCO and then there's SCO. The SCO you're thinking of was
Santa Cruz Operation, which did indeed acquire the rights to Microsoft
Xenix and make it their own, before their later acquisition of the
official Unix rights. The SCO of the lawsuit is really Caldera, which
had acquired the Unix properties and the company name from Santa Cruz
Operation. The company that had been Santa Cruz Operation continued
for a while as Tarantella Corp. until it was acquired by Sun.
