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 developers who are working at SCO will lose their jobs because management tried to do a Get Rich Money Scheme.

Excuse me, but this has been going on, out in the open, for over 4 and a half years. Just how many tears do you expect us to weep for people who are aiding and abetting this scam?

Back in 2003, I would have agreed with you. In fact, I made some posts to that effect. But anyone at SCO today simply deserves what they get. And has either had ample warning, or is too stupid to see the obvious.

It's childish of me, I know. But after following this whole thing for all these years, I am gratified to see SCOX's market cap plummet to less than $7m. And I smile as I say to myself, out loud, "Die SCO! Die!". Sometimes it's OK to allow yourself a childish moment, I suppose. ;-)

Sometimes? Look at what that got Darl. A worthless company being whored out.

I'm quite curious of what Microsoft has to say about the fallen for two reasons:

a) Microsoft bankrolled them through Baystar to keep up the IP fight.
b) Any money they put into SCO by licensing illegitimate IP goes to Novell, which brings to mind this scenario:

Novell is well within its rights to void any agreement made between SCO and MS relative to the IP in question, which puts Novell in a very good position at the bargaining table should MS decide to follow that route, and it would be in their best interest to do so because we all know there is some semblance of Unix in Windows just waiting to come out one way or the other.
