SCO's last arguments in 'Who owns Linux?' case vs. IBM knocked out


Current bunch suing IBM is not SCO...

"The SCO Group" is actually Caldera Linux renamed to confuse itself with The Santa Cruise Organization.


Re: IBM has profited as well

As did Caldera Linux; before naming themselves "The SCO Group" to confuse people between Caldera Linux, a Linux company and The Santa Cruise Organization who actually owned some ancient code, and had no connection to "The SCO Group".....

Zombie SCO shuffles back into court seeking IBM Linux cash


Planned stock sales again?

The SCO Guys only do this type of announcement when their execs have stock sales "pre-planned"; the TSG stock used to rise quite a bit with these threats.
