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."

I do feel a little sorry for all the companies/individuals that paid SCO for licenses for Linux.

I also question Microsoft's motives for giving SCO a LOT of cash near the beginning of this case...and now that the whole thing is over - whether there will be any backlash on them. Will they get away with this?

It is a clear win for Linux and for companies who survive on Linux. Despite the software itself being free, Linux is big business and now represents a growing industry so this is great news.

Most of us knew all along but a lot of businesses became very reluctant to touch linux when SCO first made their claims public. Hopefully these businesses will have new confidence to try it out now.
