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.

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.

Wooot?

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).
