Legal "Federal district judge Dale A. Kimball has handed down the final judgment in the SCO case. The decision dismisses SCO's latest claims, grants declaratory relief to Novell, and sustains the court's previous judgment that SCO owes Novell over $2.54 million (plus interest) for unjust enrichment."

RE[3]: serves them right

Those who remained with SCOG ... serves them right too.

Your fangs are showing, Lemur. Some of SCOG's remaining employees are still doing respectable technical work on OpenServer 6. Or they were, at least, up through a year ago when the latest stable version was released. Not everyone quits their job because their employer insulted Linux. You might. I might. But everyone should not be expected to.

These events surely cannot have not come as a complete surprise to them, but "serves them right" is too vindictive for my taste.

Meanwhile, as I've said before, the prime movers... the real culprits, have likely seen a net financial benefit from all that has happened, will never be taken to account by any court, and will be happily on their way when everything is over.

What has happened is probably the closest thing to actual justice that is possible under the constraints of how corporations and their employees are handled under US law. But anyone happy that "justice has been served" in this instance is thinking more like a sports fan than a concerned citizen.
