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."

> 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!

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?

That bad hey?

Beancounters especially at SCOG have had four + years worth of warning that the company they were working for had "bet the house" on a losing strategy and was headed straight towards oblivion.

Surely in four years anyone could line up a job elsewhere with better prospects? Even in the US ... four years should be long enough. If the new employer wants to know why they were looking for a new job, a beancounter would merely need to show the new employer SCOG's share price chart. This gives a valid reason why this person is seeking other employment, and at the same times shows the new employer that this beancounter is well aware of the current number of beans ...
