I disagree with that and I do not and never have believed Microsoft is funding them, it is nothing more than comspiracy theory ramblings of figures in the Open Source community that Microsoft is funding SCO.

Well, MS may or may not be funding SCO, right now there isn't any proof either way (though there are some connections between Baystar Capital and MS, apparently). One thing is certain, though: MS profits from the uncertainty propagated by the trial. I wouldn't be surprised if MS was helping SCO out, but until there's more proof it will remain a theory. It's important to keep an open mind about this, though: sometimes, conspiracy theories are true!
