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.

Gotto agree with Shaman on this one. Would you think the Gates Foundation would have bothered doing the same for South America as they are with Africa?

No, wait, that's right half the Governments in South America have told the US to shove their medical patents up their ass and gone about producing their own versions of patented American drugs.

There is nothing Philanthropic about the Gates Foundation, no more than say Bush and Rumsfield picking up a rifle and going on patrol in Bagdad for the good of the Iraqi People.

Must admit, I liked the closing comment even if it was an insult.
