SCO, Caldera, Unixware "Since they cannot show infringement of SCO Unix code, SCO now plans to challenge the 9-year-old settlement between AT&T and BSD. If it can successfully do that, then its claims that Linux contains tainted code can be substantiated. If it can't, SCO is dead meat." Says NewsForge. *Updated*

Follow the money...

Why does SCO stock always seem to go up when current news/research indicate that it should be going down? Somebody (with money) is betting on SCO winning (or at least creating enough FUD to delay adoption of open source operating systems). Somehow, somewhere, there is a lot of money riding on SCO and it's effect on open source software. I don't think this issue will be resolved by logic. There is just too much money riding on this issue to insure that justice will prevail. Almost everyone who has anything to do with writing software has a stake in this issue - either from the proprietary side or the open side.
