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*

"Novell had a non compete agreemnet with SCO from the selling of Unix in 95."

You forgot to mention this is according to SCO. According to Novell, this isn't true.

"Selling Linux is definetly competing with SCO Unix."

Highly debatable.

It seems you're repeating what the newsitem said, which hasn't actually been proved yet and it is already clear these so-called ''facts'' are obvious. I think next time you can better also provide a URL with your non-original babbling.

"However MS unix tools do use NetBSD. The company that supplys the tools is (Poor, Poor MS) ;-)"

OpenBSD too

Cisco, among others, use OpenSSH (BSDLv2). Just see the recent advisories by them at the times OpenSSH <= 3.4 was vulnerable to a remote compromise.
