SCO, Caldera, Unixware On April 29, SCO will finally have its day in court, but not exactly in the way the Unix and Linux litigation company had planned. If things had gone the way SCO wanted, it would be facing IBM to see how much money it would get for IBM using Unix code in Linux. Instead of that fantasy coming true, SCO will be trying to hang on to what's left of its assets from Novell.

"Are you just stupid, or am I really smart? What part of feeling sorry for family members, and not the actual workers, don't you understand? What does blame have to do with this?"

You said: "I'm happy SCO is going away, but I do feel sad for its employees. They have mouths to feed, too.". If you had said "I'm sorry for its employees' families", you would have a point, but that's not the case.

BTW, isn't personal insult against the rules of this news site? Oh, I forgot, as you said, it's no news site at all, it's your personal blog. I should have checked whom I was responding to.

FWIW, Thom's response to you seemed way out of proportion to me. And I, too, noted with surprise the violation of the site's TOS.

There is an overwhelming mass of injustice going on in this world. Every day, every hour, every minute. Sympathy and caring are finite quantities. In the grand scheme of things, the plights of the remaining SCO Group employees and their families ranks pretty low on my list of charitable causes. If OSNews wants to organize a support fund, I certainly would not object. But don't expect me to contribute to it.

My apologies, been having a hard time today with my university screwing me over once again (long story, but I'm getting f'd in the a once again), so I snapped a bit there.

It's actually not that bad a snap in Dutch; the expression comes from a famous Dutch football coach who once said this to a member of the press asking him a silly question. He said: "Zijn jullie nu zo dom, of ben ik nu zo slim?" Which means: "Are you guys really stupid, or I am I really smart?" This has become kind of a fairly harmless fixed expression in Dutch, but you guys couldn't know.

Excusez-moi.
