Suing Linux vendors is one thing... But suing Linux users? (SCO plans to single out and sue a large corporation that is using Linux). That's quite another. I have a hard time believing SCO can sue a user for using a product that they have not yet established violates their copyright. If SCO did establish that, then perhaps they could sue users that continued to use it. But without that being established, I don't see how they can do it.
