SCO, Caldera, Unixware A declaration by SCO's backer, BayStar has revealed that the software Giant Microsoft had more links to the anti-Linux bad-boy. The declaration made by from BayStar general partner Larry Goldfarb has turned up as part of IBM's evidence to the court. Goldfarb says that Baystar had been chucking USD 50 million at SCO despite concerns that it had a high cash burn rate. He also claims that former Microsoft senior VP for corporate development and strategy Richard Emerson discussed "a variety of investment structures wherein Microsoft would 'backstop', or guarantee in some way, BayStar's investment". Thanks to The Inq for the summary.

//The article this news is about had enough FUD-slinging. And I've said before that the FACT that is posted is interesting enough. It's the additional "analysises" by PJ in which she adds FUD whenever she gets the chance to that makes me mostly ignore Groklaw.

As for lies, I am not going to go through hundreds of pages to prove that point, so ignore that point if you feel like.//

Amazing.

This is a link to an article which quotes a sworn statement to the effect that MS high-up management promised to underwrite BayStar investment in the faux SCOG case against Linux.

Yet people still come on OSNews and defend Microsoft and call FUD. What reason could they possibly have to be so blind and biased? Why defend an already proven monopolist antitrust abuser when there is direct evidence they are doing it again?

How can it be FUD to quote a sworn statement?
