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.

Debunked? Only if SCO saying "Is not!" constitutes debunking.

The court record speaks for itself. SCO filed a lawsuit with no evidence, hoping for a settlement or buyout from IBM. Now they're getting their heads handed to them.

It doesn't look to me like judges Wells and Kimball consider the documents "debunked".
