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."

I fondly recall that Caldera Linux was a GREAT desktop and Server OS. What possessed them to abandon an arguably successful Linux variant in favor of bolstering a tenuous grip on a dying UNIX product I will never understand.

Darl McBride deserves to be the most reviled individual in the annals of tech history. It is my greatest wish that he will never again have gainful employment in the software world because the man is an idiot.

I worked for a guy who claimed he was the one who came up with the idea to be able to play Tetris while the installation ran.

I've only ever seen this 'feature' on Caldera Linux. It was pretty awesome. Why can't we have something similar now???

Many of the newer generation Linux dists install from a LiveCD, so you can play games or surf while the install is running. It's a cool idea, but at the same time I can usually find something to do for a few minutes (like make dinner, vacuum, watch TV, etc.).
