SCO, Caldera, Unixware "Darl McBride has the unenviable reputation as the man who tried to milk Linux. As CEO and president of SCO Group, McBride has spent the last few years trying to collect billions in licensing fees from companies using the Linux operating system, earning the wrath of the world's open-source geeks. For scores of programmers, here was a lawyered-up copyright troll trying to shake down Linux - the free, open-source operating system built by idealistic hackers working for the common good. But McBride insists he's just misunderstood."

There is no problem with anybody making money with Linux. The problem is: extortion, barratry, securities fraud, mail fraud, slander, liable, vexatious abuse of the legal system, and many other felonies.
