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.

"Novell distributes a Linux distro... They arent going to sue linux users"


Didn't we say the same thing about Caldera?

I begrudgingly admit the truth of your comment and have voted you up in spite of my feelings about this potential issue re: Novell.

Thank you, Sir! May I have another!!

Yes but the key difference is that Caldera claimed they didn't know that "their" Unix code was in Linux. Novell would have a much harder time making such an argument with all the noise Caldera made.
