     "As companies turn away from Microsoft's restrictive and costly licensing
 policies and look for backoffice alternatives, SCO will have a low-cost suite
 offering that customers will find appealing," said Louis Imershein, senior

 to the SMB market for its simple, easy-to-use graphical interface, its
 reliability and its cost effectiveness in running their business."
