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."

(ok, it's actually me. If it was Lemur, he'd probably be egging SCO's janitor's car or something while shouting "serves you right!")


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?

Now you're getting it, Lemur2. This is precisely what I said in my post, which you disagreed with, resulting in this thread. It's easy to fall into the trap of really believing that legal incorportation (literally, to make into a body or person) really does create a new person, in this case named SCOG, which can be admired, punished, and judged as a person, when in fact, it is just a fiction and an artifact of law, albeit with a substantial legal significance. In actual fact, a corporation is not a person but a diverse collection of people. Some secretaries, some upper management, some kernel engineers, and some janitors.

Condemning the overlords, while having compassion for the other folks is exactly the way of thinking that I have been trying to get across to you.

I'm not sure what it was that you misread about my position, but I can assure you that you need not have bothered because this too was my thinking all along.

All of those who sought to reap millions from trashing the efforts of others are the ones to be held in contempt. That group includes any who testified for SCOG (including Gupta who cherry-picked and then re-arranged Linux code in a despearte and rather pathetic attempt to show similarity). It includes any who obtained SCOG shares on the expectations of millions obtained fraudlently from IBM. It possibly includes some of the lawyers, who must have been able to see the truth from very early on, yet kept going.

It clearly doesn't include the janitors and secretaries.
