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.

By the way, whats in Section 13 that PJ censored?

PJ didn't censor it. It was marked in the Groklaw article as "redacted", a court term. Presumably IBM don't want the contents of this made public until they introduce it in court, and have (with the court's consent) had it "redacted". We'll find out - eventually!

That's what I expected. I'm used to that, but I would have liked NotParker the Troll to admit so himself...

It can also be redacted because it contains information that was originally redacted by SCO.

In any event, PJ is not censoring anything, she is quoting the court document.

It is the copy of the court document which is available to the public which itself says "REDACTED". PJ just quotes it verbatim.
