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.

"suspect so, yes. They've not done anything to make me think that they will *not* take the short-sighted view, as most corps seem to do when things get tough"

Haven't really haven't done anything to make me think that they will, and they've been losing marketshare for years. They've owned the Unix copyrights for long enough to make me think that if they haven't done it now, they probably won't.
