SCO, Caldera, Unixware The SCO Group plans to emerge from Chapter 11 soon and revealed that not only will it modify its business strategy towards mobile products, it will also replace chief executive officer Darl McBride and pick up the Linux and Unix license lawsuits against IBM and Novell. The new owner of The SCO Group, investment firm Stephen Norris Capital Partners, is planning to open a new chapter in SCO's Linux lawsuit history, which started back in March of 2003 when the company filed a USD 1 billion suit against IBM. As part of its plan organization, SCO announced that it will appeal the proceedings, which will begin with an appeal against a key decision in favor of Novell from August 10, 2007, which also impacts the lawsuit against IBM.

This topic reminds me of the whole Palestinian/Israeli fighting going on. The Palestinians just never learn... you WON'T win. You CAN'T win.

And I suppose you forgot to add the obvious - "and neither can the Israeli's". No problem, we all forget things...

But back on topic, I agree that the continued pyrrhic battle to sue EVERYONE ELSE ON EARTH is probably not a sound business strategy for SCO. It must sound good to the suits, though. I guess there's just something pleasant sounding about Mom, Apple Pie and Lawsuits to some business people.
