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.

Well, that's the Linux part. I think the french guy was thinking of putting Unix (the parts owned by Novell) under the GPL.

Of course I could be misreading.
