from Caldera's World Wide Web page.

Caldera believes that leveraging the experience and reach of a comprehensive
network of channel partners is essential to successfully market low-cost,
feature-rich computing alternatives. Caldera employs field representatives
who recruit, educate and assist channel partners and who promote third-party
applications designed for Caldera's platform.
