Betrayal of trust

Were SCO to win this, who in the world would ever willingly sign a contract with them again? People would instead work feverishly to find ways around infringing on any ownership they might have, simply because of the kind of scum they would have to deal with otherwise.

I'll tell you something else; in all my 25 years of experience in the computer industry, I've never seen such rot as the people who run SCO right now...and believe me, I've seen some rot.

In fact, I'm beginning to suspect that these letters may indicate that *SCO* have stolen code from *other people* and are trying to turn that around to suit them.
