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.

What remains a complete mystery to me is: Did they really think they could win a case without having the slightest bit of evidence (except for that funny Las Vegas slideshow
http://perens.com/SCO/SCOSlideShow.html ).

Or is this how the US legal system usually works? But if so, then probably not against the force of IBM's lawyers.

Or could the motivation behind SCO's efforts be that this case helped some people to make a fortune, even though they would eventually run the company into the ground?
