Legal Should I be sad or relieved? Groklaw, the website that played a central role in the SCO vs. sanity case, has just announced it will close up shop on May 16 of this year. Groklaw's place in history has been secured, surely, but in recent years, the site became more and more like a relic from the past, clearly stuck in the everyone vs. Microsoft mindset of the late '90s and early 2000s. Even in today's announcement post, Groklaw shows that its time has indeed come.

With a relic I meant that Groklaw is still firmly entrenched in this idea that Microsoft - and Microsoft alone - is the big bad wolf in computer-land. This is no longer the case. Microsoft is but one of many wolves in computer land. I mean, PJ claimed - time and time again - that the Psystar case was a Microsoft ploy to destroy the GPL, meanwhile advocating for the entirely closed and controlling Apple!

PJ should've either gone with the times, or quit a few years ago. Now, while I will remember the good things she's done, I'll also never forget the whackier stuff she came up with later on.
