Legal Should I be sad or relieved? Groklaw, the website that played a central role in the SCO vs. sanity case, has just announced it will close up shop on May 16 of this year. Groklaw's place in history has been secured, surely, but in recent years, the site became more and more like a relic from the past, clearly stuck in the everyone vs. Microsoft mindset of the late '90s and early 2000s. Even in today's announcement post, Groklaw shows that its time has indeed come.

Thom,

You act like you have never been wrong. So maybe PJ was wrong about Psystar. She is not infallible. What she is though is a great researcher and archivist. Opinion aside, Groklaw holds a vast amount of knowledge about the law and technology in general. She has also worked very hard to make that info available to the world for no cost. As a fellow web site operator, you should at least have some respect for the content she provides. Would anyone use OSnews as a resource after it closed its doors?

As for Microsoft, well they still act like the big bad wolf. True they are not alone. But they are still the biggest threat to free technology in the world. Other wise we wouldn't still be seeing stories like Microsoft suing Barnes and Noble. We are also finding out just recently that Microsoft was actually collaborating with SCO through Baystar.(according to recently available testimony from one of Baystar's execs). The war is still in full swing.
