So the court says Novell owns Unix. That would certainly seem to take the wind out of SCO's case, though of course they still say "the case has not yet been fully vetted by the legal system and we will continue to explore our options with respect to how we move forward from here." Well, sure, they also said a lot more, but who cares?
Okey-dokey. I'm pretty sure I asked this question before: how dumb do you have to be to think you bought something you didn't? The judge didn't answer that question, unfortunately. The article I referenced above suggests that SCO might now sue the lawyers that crafted that, umm, purchase for them. I'm sure Linux users don't care (who likes lawyers anyway, right?).
So please, please, please, let's hope that's the last we here from SCO threatening Linux. We have enough problems with Microsoft. Ooops..Daryl McBride doesn't seem to agree.
So we have to put up with this longer? Oh boy..
Got something to add? Send me email.
