GartnerGroup attacks IBM-SCO Alliance

GartnerGroup Inc. has issued a report criticizing the nascent alliance between the Santa Cruz Operation Inc. (SCO) and IBM Corp. to develop a new version of Unix on Intel, calling it a highly ambitious project that may prove to be something of a disaster. Project Monterey, as it has been dubbed by participants, is a high-stakes gamble which, should it fail to pay off, could mean more business and a better image for competing Unix vendors like Sun, said GartnerGroup.
