...tell that to the Judge, SCO. I'm sure they'll be very understanding...NOT! If anything, the only thing this memo proves is that SCO has been lying from the beginning. Isn't that what we've been saying all along?

That e-mail was shown by IBM to the judge already and he refused to dismiss the case. SCO's consultant did say that there are examples of code copied into Linux from UNIX. Obviously that was enough for the judge in the case.

Roberto, just because the judge didn't dismiss the case doesn't mean that a) the memo isn't damaging or b) that the judge believes that there was code copied. It certainly doesn't mean that SCO's case is looking good.

It seems your intense dislike of Linux is once again clouding your judgement. The odds are not in SCO's favor, in fact they're not even close. You'll have to start accepting this at some point.
