Legal "SCO was dealt yet another blow in court today when District Judge Ted Stewart rejected the company's motion requesting a new trial or judgement of law. In a ruling issued today, Judge Stewart sided with a jury that issued a verdict against SCO in April, finding that Novell was the rightful owner of the UNIX SVRX copyrights. According to Judge Stewart, SCO failed to demonstrate that the jury's verdict contradicted the evidence presented in the case."

A final sense of justice (and humour) would be that SCO does indeed get bought-out/recover but later on becomes a company synonymous with selling and supporting Linux distros and/or other 'open' operating systems for enterprise markets! Oh the irony. ;)


Wasn't SCO exactly that, before it kind-of turned wacko and started chewing on the hand that fed it? I seem to recall a "thing" named Caldera from the forgotten era...

Caldera had Ray Noorda, after he left Novell,buying DR-DOS and suing Microsoft almost immediately as he sat down in his chair. So, really, the wackiness started quite a long time ago. Of course, in those days, there was a real point to it, as Microsoft had manufactured ways to discourage DR-DOS users from using Windows 3.0 with DR-DOS 5.x and Windows 3.1 with DR-DOS 6.x.
