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.

You really worship your Lord... kneel serf.. kneel! HAHA ...

The charity work is so small in reality, and only works as to give more MS-users in the coming years.

If Bill Gates meant it seriously he would fight patents and copyrights on medicine, and make it possible for africans to produce cheap medicine. It would give MS fewer benefits (being in opposition to the republicans then), but would also safe many more africans.
