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*

Can you elaborate on the differences between BSD "the entity" and the BSD OSes?

Of course, you can't sue an operating system, since it is not a person or a corporation/institution. In the same vein, you can't sue Linux itself. But it's clear from Darl's quote that he's now targeting the BSDs as much as he can be said to target Linux.

Not that it matters. SCO has already lost. Boies and co. will cash in their stock before the whole house of cards crashes down.
