Bye-bye Sco

Recommended Posts

SCO, a now bankrupt Unix company sued IBM several years ago for billions claiming that proprietary Unix code was embedded in IBM's Linux. As it turns out SCO was full of it.

The final judgment has occurred. Bye-bye SCO. :matrix:

SCO owes big coin to Novell

If I remember Microsoft was financing the SCO lawsuit in hopes to slow the adoption of Linux or at least collect a license fee.

Yeah, I read that as well. Also, MS entered into a deal with Novell which would protect Novell customers from litigation. Rather ironic that Novell actually owned the Unix copywrite and not SCO. Novell finishes off SCO.

if you Read the MS deal with Novell you will see that Microsoft purchased more protection to its customers over UNIX parts in windows than they gave Novell for protections over windows stuff in Linux. But Microsoft Marketing got to announce the Deal.

Heh, that doesn't surprise me at all. MS always puts the interests of MS first.
