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.

//Because PJ is not much of a journalist and has a strong bias against Microsoft. These are the reaons I do not visit Groklaw.//

So you are saying that you prefer the "head in the sand, hands on ears, la la la la I can't hear you" approach?

Groklaw quotes from legal documents. This is not a bias.

Groklaw quotes from legal documents.

Groklaw selectively quotes snippets out of context from mostly debunked legal documents while mixing in plenty of misleading and blantantly false "analysis", yes.

Kind of like how FOX News pretends that Rep. Foley is a Democrat.

"mostly debunked"

?? prove it. Show one "debunked" legal document. PJ picks her quotes to illustrate points, but the entire documents are available and always linked to from the articles.
