Legal "Federal district judge Dale A. Kimball has handed down the final judgment in the SCO case. The decision dismisses SCO's latest claims, grants declaratory relief to Novell, and sustains the court's previous judgment that SCO owes Novell over $2.54 million (plus interest) for unjust enrichment."

Guys, Lemur is a foss, and particularly a Linux troll. I think its time to starve him, not feed him. There ya go, Lemur, your last bite. Savor it.


Excuse me?

SCOG sued IBM in the (admittedly deluded) hopes of extorting 5 billion dollars, and trashing the honest work of a million + contributors to the common good across the globe. They were simply fools for failing to realise how many people were willing to devote how much time and effort trying to stop them. Look at the collected input into a site like Groklaw, and estimate how many person-hours have gone into writing all that material over the years, and you may get some idea.

I get ... what exactly? ... from pointing out on OSNews exactly why this corporate greed behavior is so utterly unacceptable. Hopefully I get people to re-examine exactly why they are such lemmings for continuously letting corporations walk all over them.

You get ... what exactly? ... from questioning my motive ... apart from a possible further unjustified smear on the efforts towards software liberation?

You call troll ... I call astroturfer in return ... I'll leave it up to the reader to examine possible motivations for each position and who stands to make any money by ripping people off out of either position.

Those employees who are out of work at SCO are not evil, the receptionists, janitors, developers, designers, testers, it support people, they are not the corporate management, and can not be held accountable for what that management does.

Sometimes having a job is better than having no job and standing on principle. Principles won't feed the baby, or pay the mortgage.

Agreed. Precisely so. Who would have thought otherwise?

Hopefully, like everyone else on the planet they could foresee the stupidity of SCOG's management, and have accordingly pre-arranged a new job for themselves to go to when the SCOG scam comes to its painfully obvious conclusion.
