Legal It's time for bed over here, but before I turn in with a nice cup of tea and a Gilmore Girls episode, we've got some good news for you: SCO has been dealt yet another major blow in its baseless lawsuit against Novell. A jury has ruled that Novell owns the UNIX copyrights - not SCO.

If they where before, aren't they re-inventing the wheel?


For some things, they (BSDs) don't have a choice. The GNU project is moving to GPL3, which effectively prevents those bits from being included in the BSDs. For example, GCC will never be upgraded beyond 4.something because they've moved to GPL3. Thus, alternatives have to be developed.
