SCO, Caldera, Unixware A declaration by SCO's backer, BayStar has revealed that the software Giant Microsoft had more links to the anti-Linux bad-boy. The declaration made by from BayStar general partner Larry Goldfarb has turned up as part of IBM's evidence to the court. Goldfarb says that Baystar had been chucking USD 50 million at SCO despite concerns that it had a high cash burn rate. He also claims that former Microsoft senior VP for corporate development and strategy Richard Emerson discussed "a variety of investment structures wherein Microsoft would 'backstop', or guarantee in some way, BayStar's investment". Thanks to The Inq for the summary.

Better the Bush administration than the EU neo-Nazis. Honestly, can you Europeans go a single day without calling for outright genocide, let alone enacting new laws to persecute minorities?

Out right genocide?
Persecuting minorities?


WTF are you talking about? I know of no single call for out right genocide or laws persecuting minorities... not a single one. I know of laws that protect minorities - even to the extend that these laws are persecuting the majorities, but not a single law to persecute minorities. Actually there have been several additions to the European Human Rights Convention in order to battle any kind of discrimination of minorities.

Even when it means discriminating native population and therefore persecuting the majorities.
