Novell and Ximian In the wake of last week's ruling that Novell, and not SCO, controls the copyrights covering UNIX, Novell is reassuring Unix users that it has no plans to follow in SCO's footsteps. Given that the company is no longer in the business of selling UNIX, it has no reason to pursue any copyright claims.

I don't see any sense in Novell suing anyone over Unix. They've taken too much bad press lately and I couldn't see anything beneficial for Novell, from a public relations perspective, from suing anyone.

Dealing with MS is bad press in forums filled with enthusiasts, but its good press for businesses looking to deploy a linux solution in a microsoft world.

Good show indeed!! Maybe we can convince Royal Bank of Canada to start some new PIPE financing to underwrite Caldera's appeal of the near nuclear holocaust level of a loss in their case against Big Red.

The show might then go on ...

Muwahahahahahahahaha!!
