SCO, Caldera, Unixware Novell appears to be attempting to cut off SCO's lifeline to its cash reserves. By not focusing on the arguments over who owns what in Unix but instead hammering on the far more simple matter of SCO not living up to its business contract, Novell hopes to put a quick end to SCO and its seemingly endless Linux litigation.

There most certainly is proof of msft involvement. Msft arranged about $73 million to fund the scam. Yes, that is proven.

Where are the court documents please. I had heard of this as did everyone, but there was never any actual proof that I am aware of. Please direct me to the findings by the court to where Microsoft was fined and or punished after being found guilty of this, as it is most certainly a crime.

There are no court documents because it has not gone to court. Until the scox-scam is settled, IBM can not sue msft for funding a scam.

But:

1) in the famous halloween document, msft agrees to fund the scam for up to $100MM.

2) Why did msft want to keep their involvement secret?

3) Why did msft pay for Unix licenses that msft already had, and wasn't using?

Please, there is plenty of evidence of msft involvement in this scam. You are grasping at straws to claim otherwise.

Now get real.
