SCO, Caldera, Unixware Yahoo reports that SCO has filed [.pdf] for bankruptcy in order to protect assets. "The SCO Group today announced that it filed a voluntary petition for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. SCO's subsidiary, SCO Operations, Inc., has also filed a petition for reorganization. The Board of Directors of The SCO Group have unanimously determined that Chapter 11 reorganization is in the best long-term interest of SCO and its subsidiaries, as well as its customers, shareholders, and employees." Groklaw has a story on it, too.

I wonder...

I wonder how long before they reorganize McBride out of SCO. I wonder what numb nut will hire him to be an executive.

Mostly I wonder what SCO plans to do now. They can't really continue the lawsuit. It would be in the best interest of the stockholders (what few remain), their customers, and the business itself to boot McBride, make an apology to the Linux community, and embrace Linux (not that it would probably do them any good at this point).

At the end of the day SCO is probably going to be just another dead business. A small note in the computer history book. At least we probably got a new term to use when somebody does something similar in the future. We can just call it a McBride.
