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."

Toilet Paper

A roll of the good toilet paper is worth more than a share of SCO stock. SCO stock is probably to scratchy anyway.

"""

Wrong. If you buy by the 4 pack, the really cheapy stuff is 88 cents where I live. That does work out to 22 cents per roll. But If you want to buy an individual roll, it's 39 cents. SCOX is currently selling for 37 cents.

So an individual roll of the really cheapy, generic brand toilet paper is worth more than an individual share of SCOX stock, is far less embarrassing to admit to owning, and is not declining in value as SCOX is. Furthermore, it is quite useful, when the need arises, and is just a better investment, all around.

I can recommend, with no reservation, the purchase of "$ave" brand toilet paper over SCOX certificates, even for the same application.
