SCO, Caldera, Unixware SCO has published a statement after the court ruling in their case against Novell: "The company is obviously disappointed with the ruling issued last Friday. However, the court clearly determined that SCO owns the copyrights to the technology developed or derived by SCO after Novell transferred the assets to SCO in 1995." And at the end: "Although the district judge ruled in Novell's favor on important issues, the case has not yet been fully vetted by the legal system and we will continue to explore our options with respect to how we move forward from here."

THE SCO-MICROSOFT CONSPIRACY

What I am looking forward to is somebody (IBM? REDHAT? LINUX FOUNDATION?) suing Microsoft for conspiracy to commit fraud and cheating Linux companies of rightful revenues by FUD and defamation.

For the past 5 years Microsoft has been fully aware that SCO had no case but it still paid it a kickback in the name of "intellectual property" to help fund it's fight against Linux. I would like Microsoft to show the world, the Justice department, and the EU what it used this "IP" for and in what Windows applications this SCO "IP" is implemented.

This SCO implosion is just the tip of a Microsoft iceberg of trying to win every battle by hook or crook. The hand in this case is Esau's but the voice is Jacob's.

When you type FUD, what definition are you thinking about? FUD is legal especially if it is true. Defamation is a different story.
