SCO, Caldera, Unixware Novell appears to be attempting to cut off SCO's lifeline to its cash reserves. By not focusing on the arguments over who owns what in Unix but instead hammering on the far more simple matter of SCO not living up to its business contract, Novell hopes to put a quick end to SCO and its seemingly endless Linux litigation.

"Does it really matter if they gathered together in a back room and whispered to each other, or if SCO independently decided to file a frivolous suit against IBM, and MS independently decided to send them $15M in funding to fuel their FUD mongering against what was mutually their greatest potential competitor? (And then referred Baystar to them for even more funding.)"

What competitor? Linux? Sorry, but until the likes of Adobe start actually porting software to Linux, Linux is no threat to any of the major OS. I am not against Linux at all and use it myself, just saying it is not a threat until proprietary vendors start porting mission critical software over. There is no tru photoshop replacement for business, The Gimp needs a lot of work, and Dreamweaver is considered critical to some places.
