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*

Not Such A Bad Idea, Really

If I were McBride, I'd go after the settlement too. Why not?

The only downside to the strategy is that SCO was a beneficiary of the settlement as well, so it's a bit hard to claim that the settlement somehow breached SCO's IP rights. Without the settlement, SCO wouldn't even be in business!

Makes you wonder what Boise and McBride are smoking!
