SCO, Caldera, Unixware The SCO Group plans to announce Monday that it is escalating its campaign to collect license fees from corporations using the Linux OS, with warning letters to the companies. Supporters of Linux, including IBM and other companies, say that SCO's interpretation of its claim over Linux is exaggerated.

SCO is probably telling the truth but yes they are over exagerating. Furthermore, their attorney's SUCK. I doubt they will win any lawsuit. They need a good PR campaign not a bad one toward linux. thanks to SCO we are now seeing a faster adoption of linux in the enterprise. I mean look- linux is on TV now (mainstream even!)

SCO is not going about it the wrong way. They should sue the hell out of the companies that broke their contractual agreements and leave linux alone.

David Bioes (cannot spell) is a du|/|mb$h!t.. They are going about it all wrong. The only thing SCO will get accomplished is this.

1) short period of high stock value
2) alot of press, benifiting linux more.
3) they will make alot of people angry.
4) old SCO linux customers will be pi$$ed.
5) they will loose their legal battles probably
6) lawsuits can be filed against SCO due to their stupid actions

SCO is a young little company that needs to learn that althouigh this can benifit them in the short term they will die in the long run. I guess thats what you'd expect from crooks like mcbride.
