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."

which in turn represent the collected efforts of 1.5 million + developers over many years. The lawsuits were an attempt to appropriate the works of others, and if not appropriate them then destroy them.


Do you drink Coke? Pepsi? Do you buy sportswear like, say , Nike? Do you buy cheap technology made in China? Cheap clothes? Did your dad give your mom a diamond ring?
On the ladder of evil companies SCO is pretty damn low on the rung, ya know.

Yes, because SCO only employed technical people. No other staff like beancounters, secretaries, adinistrative staff etc. Well, I guess they did but it sure serve those people right for wanting to feed their families and not knowing about Linux!

A thoroughly deserved outcome in all respects IMO.

Seriously, dude, grow up and/or get a life.

Get real. A secretary or a beancounter can walk into a normal, saner company right across the road tomorrow without a second thought. They should have had a plan to do so for years now because the writing has been on the wall for the demise of SCOG for a tremendously long time.

The only people whose technical reputations will be rightfully trashed over this affair are those who continued to work towards helping SCO perhaps achieve their ends for years after the true nature & intent of SCOG as a vexatious litigator and bottom feeder was painfully obvious.

Gupta is one such name that comes to mind (and certainly a person who was a recipient of SCOG shares).

Not true, at least not in the US currently. Or haven't you noticed the unemployment rates and lack of new jobs? What company are they supposed to walk into making the same money, which counts out that it is possible if they would like to ask if you want fries with the burger?

Surely the janitor who, through no fault of his/her own, now has to take the trouble to find another job, would be helping to egg the SCOG suits cars, while shouting "serves you right!"

What is it with you Yanks always attributing the blame in any place but your corporate overlords? Have the corporates put something in your water, or what?
