True. But I consider i.e. Solaris different than SCO. Staying with SCO is 
just waiting until the building collapses. The rational reasoning is to 
get out of the building. 

This has been true for OS/2 too of course, but unlike SCO it had good
hobby value and active user communities. Beos and MorphOS rely solely on 
hobby users, and therefore hobby porting makes good sense.
