Caldera, Inc. was established in 1994 by two former Novell employees Ransom Love 
and Bryan Sparks. Much of the funding came from Ray Noorda, Novell's former 
President and CEO and his Canopy Group Investment Company, which he founded in 
1995. In February 1996, Caldera released its first Linux product under the name 
of Caldera Network Desktop 1.0. New releases followed at regular intervals, but 
it wasn't until Caldera OpenLinux 2.3 in August 1999 that the company made a 
substantial impact on the Linux market by introducing Lizard. Caldera's Lizard 
was the first graphical installer ever deployed by a Linux distribution.
