Novell and Ximian In the wake of last week's ruling that Novell, and not SCO, controls the copyrights covering UNIX, Novell is reassuring Unix users that it has no plans to follow in SCO's footsteps. Given that the company is no longer in the business of selling UNIX, it has no reason to pursue any copyright claims.

Novell is reassuring Unix users that it has no plans to follow in SCO's footsteps.

I don't have confidence that Novell is committed to not suing if things went horribly wrong and they thought it could bail them out. But even if they were to sue they'd still be in the same position that SCO was when they sued IBM. Does anyone think they'd actually have a chance at winning that? It would just be pouring the last of their money down the drain which is why saying this is just trying to convince everyone they aren't idiots like SCO.
