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.

I don't know why everyone is getting so worked up the orginal article even said that the guy is only claiming this is what happened. It doesn't mean its absolute truth. Instead of saying "MS Involvement revealed" it may be better to say somethign like "BayStar claims MS involvement" I still hopelessly believe in the innocent until proven guilty system but thats just me.
