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.<<

What makes you think scox is telling the truth? Scox has been caught in numerous lies.

>>Furthermore, their attorney's SUCK. I doubt they will win any lawsuit.<<

Boies is a famous attorny. Scox has already won a lawsuit settlement from msft. Canopy (scox's parent - essentially the same company) has won a lawsuit settlement from CA.

>>They need a good PR campaign not a bad one toward linux.<<

Scox's PR campaign has boosted scox share price from $1 to $18. That's about as good as you can get.

>>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.<<

Scox "investors" don't want to wait until IBM case is settled. Scox need to make suckers believe that scox has a sustainable source of revenue now. It is very doubtful that anybody broke scox contract agreement - read groklaw.net.

>>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 <<

Might as well stop there. That's all scox wants, and scox's scam is working like a charm.

>>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. <<

There is no long term for scox, never was. If not for this scam, scox would be bankrupt already. 13 months ago scox was around $0.78 a share and falling. Before scam, scox never had even one profitalble. Scox was *gushing* red ink - and was down to $4.9 million in cash.
