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."

"Get real. A secretary or a beancounter can walk into a normal, saner company right across the road tomorrow without a second thought."

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 ...

"That bad hey?"

Yes, that bad. I actually know people that were with companies and did just that. The problem is when the new company they were looking for downsized, the newest people are the ones to go. So, they ended up leaving a place just to get canned from the new job. Some of them have dropped off the unemployment rolls already as the benefits have run out. The jobs are just not there sadly.
