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.

You know, I was about to ignore this stupid Israel vs. Palestine sub thread completely when I saw your post.
Beyond being -wildly- OT, you (as in all the people that somehow joined this sub-thread) seem to have zero (0) understanding on what you're talking about. (And I do mean both sides: Fox news and CNN viewers alike)

Can you quote, from memory, the number of nations that are part of the Arab Israeli conflict? How many wars have we (occupants of the middle east) seen in the last 100 years? Can you name at least two major powers that were saw active combat in middle eastern wars? How about religions - Can you tell the difference between Syria, Jordan and Iran? How about HAMMAS vs FATAH? Can you tell me what divides them vs. what unites them?

I'm willing to bet good money that my knowledge of the American (and European) history far exceeds your apparently meager middle-eastern history knowledge by a mile or two.

... So before you go and compare my home to SCO, at least take the time to know what the hell you're talking about.

Now can someone delete/lock this sub-thread?

Actually, I never started this topic, but thanks for asking.

I'm sorry an entire region of the world hates your country's guts, but guess what.....they hate ours too. Mainly because we back yours. If you don't want to believe that, then fine. In this country you're entitled to your own opinion.

And while we're on the topic of Tea in China, what do you think about the Roger Clemens Fiasco? Troubling, isn't it?

So, let me see.
In my view, you had two reasonable options:
A. Leaving my post unanswered - letting this (unbelievably unrelated) sub-thread die. (AKA "The wise choice")
B. Answering my (trivial) questions - one by one, showing off you're in-depth knowledge in middle-eastern history and geography. (...)

... Instead, you offered some fake sympathy, further pushing your unrelated/unfounded/etc opinion coupled with some unrelated American base-ball trivia.
In short, you more or less proven my point. Thanks.

Now can we let this sub-thread die? Or are you just dieing to shove some deep American-idol-like insight down my throat?
