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.

Huh?

Out right genocide?
Persecuting minorities?

Woot?

WTF are you talking about? I know of no single call for out right genocide or laws persecuting minorities... not a single one. I know of laws that protect minorities - even to the extend that these laws are persecuting the majorities, but not a single law to persecute minorities. Actually there have been several additions to the European Human Rights Convention in order to battle any kind of discrimination of minorities.

Even when it means discriminating native population and therefore persecuting the majorities.

Your words sound like what a "good" German would say during the Holocaust.

Did you miss the self-proclaimed neo-Nazi parties seizing control of the governments of north/western Europe? The anti-Turkish laws enacted by the governments of France, Denmark Germany, and Norway? Britain's illegal shootings of brown-skinned peoples? The list goes on and on.

Woot? What self-proclaimed neo-Nazi parties? Are you talking about the swedish Moderates or the danish Conservatives or the dutch Conservatives or what?

You must have some documentation to backup your wild accusations. There are no countries in Europe with nazi-parties in the government. And in no northern country is there any nazi-parties in the parlament.

Denmark has definitely NO anti-turkish laws at all. Nor has Germany and France. And Norway has most surely no such laws. Where do you get such wild ideas from? Al-Jazeera?

There are no shootings in Britain of brown-skinned people. That is such a hilarious claim. At the very least back it up with documentation.

And don't forget Britain and France's current persecution of immigrants from their former colonies (South Asia and North Africa, respectively).

And the eastern EU's just as bad. You've got the Russians assassinating their own reports to keep reports of atrocities in Chechnya under wraps and Serbia's barely moved away from its "ethnic cleansing" program.

Any of these things would be unthinkable in the US, but they're commonplace in the EU, where the only two political parties are the Communists and the Fascists.

Please give some documentation for your wild accusations (well, not for that in Russia, we already have evidence of that).

But the ethnic cleansing in Serbia ended years ago. Britain and France are persecuting immigrants from their former colonies. Please come with documentation.

Are there only Communists and Fascists in Europe? Well well... I admit they exist, but the Fascists are not powerfull, and the Communists are on the rebound. Socialdemokrats (more or less akin to Democrats) and Conservatives (more or less akin to republicans) and Liberals (European that is) are most powerful.

Personally I'm a Libertarian and very opposed to Fascism, Communism and Nazism and all religions that do not respect the individual (that would be one religion in particular - and a few others, though less so).
