IconSCO Group, which has sued IBM for more than $3 billion for allegedly moving Unix code into Linux, may also have Silicon Graphics in its crosshairs. SCO on Friday declined to comment on future legal action, but Chris Sontag, the senior vice president in charge of SCO's effort to derive more revenue from its Unix intellectual property, has said two things that suggest SGI is a likely target. SCO said sometime ago that "their" NUMA code found in Linux, has come from SGI engineers working in the Linux kernel.

Another article on SCO, is found at NewsFactor: "SCO's Road to Salvation":

"Even if they win -- which first of all seems fairly inconceivable -- one can't really see all the Linux users ponying up and paying SCO money," says Illuminata analyst Gordon Haff. "I think, more likely, they'd stop using Linux."
