" 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!"

The Royal Bank of Canada is the link, My companies canadian office has an account with the Royal Bank of Canada does that mean we are funding SCO? Every tech company in canada has an account with them does that mean they are bankrolling SCO. We purchased a user license from SCO so we could do a UnixWare / Linux performance test does that mean we are assisting SCO? I saw what Microsoft's UNIX license got them at PDC so it makes perfect sense to me why they spent that cash.
