I have Caldera installed on "Mom's Machine", an older PIII. Heck, I love
it, but it's pitiful to watch it want to update Netscape Explorer. Same
thing, Netscape did everything I could ever hope for in a browser,
including editing HTML. But, times move on and I run 10.4 on my main
computer as that is what is supported, in the here and now and I'm too
lazy/old/canny/crufty to pursue updates that won't happen. 

Caldera, no matter how much I love it, is obsolete in terms of support.
So is 9.10. I'm sure we both wish it were otherwise, but there it is.
I'd give an arm and a leg to see Caldera still being supported by it's
original staffers. Ubuntu might never have gotten off of the ground had
Caldera remained intact. 

Alas and alack, it didn't happen that way. The trick is to complete the
cycle of grief, get past the Bargaining, Anger, Denial, Depression into
Acceptance. Ric
