Novell and Ximian We were well aware that Novell had put itself on the market, coyly winking at passers-by, displaying its... Assets. VMware was a contender, but things have played out entirely different: Novell has been bought by Attachmate Corp., with a Microsoft-led consortium buying unspecified intellectual property from Novell.

I don't know why people are getting excited about this. UnixWare has no bearing on Linux because it was established that there was no Unix code whatsoever in Linux. However, it then transpired that SCO didn't even have the rights to allege what they were claiming and that's the direction things went in.
