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."

The funny thing is that their UNIX on Intel is better then Solaris on Intel.

And I will admit I was a HUGE Caldera fan till all this happened. Caldera was one of the first versions of Linux I ever used. Sco was my first brush with real Unix. (Even before I used BSD)

But they let MS talk them into blowing the company. I hope some of the people made good money cause SCO is done. And MS now sees that they may want to watch their back if they choose to sue. They have plenty of money etc but after this I am not sure they would win. Google and Novell are lawyering up to battle MS.

And I assume Oracle and IBM will not let MS push over Linux ether being that they are both making money from Linux. And both are using developing resources from other companies like Red Hat.
