SCO, Caldera, Unixware SCO has published a statement after the court ruling in their case against Novell: "The company is obviously disappointed with the ruling issued last Friday. However, the court clearly determined that SCO owns the copyrights to the technology developed or derived by SCO after Novell transferred the assets to SCO in 1995." And at the end: "Although the district judge ruled in Novell's favor on important issues, 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."

"HAa Ha!" Normally I would be sad to see a provider of Unix go away, they do make good products. But the way that SCO killed themselves has lost all pity from people who may have been a strong support for them.

Make a false claim, do not give evidence to support it or the ability for the open source community to fix it out of court.

Sue companies who are big support for Linux and some that are the size where the CEO can buy your company from spare change in his wallet. Piss them off to a point they much rather spend extra money to watch you suffer.

If SCO just sticked to selling their products. Their stock price will probably be steady around $3.00 - $6.00 a share but in a Get rich quick scheme they killed themselves. And unless you were stupid enough to be invested in the company you don't feel sorry for them.
