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.

>>Where are the court documents please.<<

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.

There may be evidence, all I am saying is nothing is proven yet. I honestly don't believe MS is that evil. The only Halloween documents I know of existed WAY before any of the SCO stuff even existed, like in the 1990's.

Didn't Microsft use those Unix licenses? Isn't that the technology in Windows services for unix?
