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.

RE[2]: Faulty business model

Member since:

I'm happy SCO is going away, but I do feel sad for its employees. They have mouths to feed, too.

I'm not, particularly. Three or four years ago, I agreed with that sentiment and remember expressing it a time or two. But these people have had nearly *five years* to see the handwriting on the wall regarding SCO's future, and the nature of the company to which they are contributing their talents. I mean, you don't have to be a Kreskin. ;-)

It's hard to feel too sorry for anyone left on that sinking ship. It's not like there were not plenty of life boats, and plenty of time to disembark.
