SCO, Caldera, Unixware On April 29, SCO will finally have its day in court, but not exactly in the way the Unix and Linux litigation company had planned. If things had gone the way SCO wanted, it would be facing IBM to see how much money it would get for IBM using Unix code in Linux. Instead of that fantasy coming true, SCO will be trying to hang on to what's left of its assets from Novell.

Faulty business model

I'm really happy to see one patent troll get what they all deserve.

I remember when the Wall Street journal ran a piece on how patent hoarding and litigation was the business model for the 21st century. I guess this situation actually puts the whole model into perspective.

If you don't have a product to sell, or you don't want to reinvest into what you already have, you can sue all you want but you are gonna end up going bust.
