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.

Wow, I don't know what to say.

I think your statement is in exceedingly bad taste. I don't understand how you can equate copyright and patent trolls, who are too stupid to know when to just drop it, with a an ethnic conflict that happens to involve two unmatched peoples fighting for what they consider to be their right and also their lives.

Dude, one costs money and is pretty pointless, the other one costs lives! It doesn't get any more serious than that!
