SCO, Caldera, Unixware The SCO Group plans to emerge from Chapter 11 soon and revealed that not only will it modify its business strategy towards mobile products, it will also replace chief executive officer Darl McBride and pick up the Linux and Unix license lawsuits against IBM and Novell. The new owner of The SCO Group, investment firm Stephen Norris Capital Partners, is planning to open a new chapter in SCO's Linux lawsuit history, which started back in March of 2003 when the company filed a USD 1 billion suit against IBM. As part of its plan organization, SCO announced that it will appeal the proceedings, which will begin with an appeal against a key decision in favor of Novell from August 10, 2007, which also impacts the lawsuit against IBM.

As season 1 of SCO came to it's dramatic end, the producers realised that there were enough viewers to enable them to script a second season.

Killing off one of the lead actors was quite a dramatic move though, I hope people will still feel themselves able to identify with the characters.

My gosh, that's what this is. An attempt at a bad Lifetime tv series for real...

Well, joking aside, I imagine that there are a number of *very* happy lawyers and judges out there at the moment, planning where exactly they want buy their 3rd holiday home.

It's Survivor - SCO Island

The difference is nobody survives. The last one on the Island gets to turn out the lights!

--------------------------------------------------

The amazing thing to me is this:
All the employees will lose their jobs. The investors will lose any money they invested.

And yet whole teams of lawyers will walk off with green lining their pockets. What a system!

Nooo! First LOST goes and kills off the Rock-n-Roll hobbit, now SCO has killed off the Mormon Con-man - and they were my two favourite characters, damn it!

Oh well, at least the CSI: SCO spin-off should be entertaining.
