I can't wait till I see IBM crush SCO with their army of lawyers. Went to the local Java group 2 months ago and was talking to a SUN Employee about the whole situation and basically I said in a nutshell that IBM has the highest lawyer to coder ratio; any code submitted would have gone throw 100 fine tooth combs. In a nutshell, IBM can crush SCO without them even lifting a finger.

SCO might as well have closed up shop and asset stripped itself to pay off creditors. Atleast the creditors and share holders would get a crust of money rather than nothing which will be the end result of this escapade.
