Legal It's time for bed over here, but before I turn in with a nice cup of tea and a Gilmore Girls episode, we've got some good news for you: SCO has been dealt yet another major blow in its baseless lawsuit against Novell. A jury has ruled that Novell owns the UNIX copyrights - not SCO.

They probably could sue to get their money back, but that wouldn't necessary mean they would get it. I think we will see SCO go belly up again really soon and then the question will be how much residual money is there to split up - after a lengthy process in which SCO likely would burn up the remainders.
Not that Microsoft would do that - they got exactly what they paid for, even though maybe not as long as they had hoped.

I hope the SCO nightmare is over, but i still can't believe it.

I don't see the SCO nightmare being over given how stupid the bankruptcy system in the US operates - where zombie companies keep coming back in a re-invented form instead of just having a dignified death.
