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.

He doesn't care. He was a mercenary, and he's getting his more than fair share out of the whole thing. And so are other SCO execs and their lawyers and some employees. The ones that are screwed here are share holders and the clients who bought into SCO's wild stories.

I assume he does. However at the same time, the whole story has probably damaged his reputation beyond repair. I would think that in the business world you can always live fine with a reputation of being amoral, greedy and so forth as long as you are successful. b
But if you are widely known to be a looser, you are finished, not?
