SCO no longer matters

Filed under
Misc

You may have noticed that I don't cover news about the never-ending SCO vs. IBM, Linux, Novell, et al much anymore. There's a reason for that: SCO doesn't matter anymore.

Oh, it's not like there's no news coming out of the courtrooms anymore. There is.

For example, there was a recent story about SCO accusing IBM of destroying evidence by "[directing] 'dozens' of its Linux developers within its LTC [Linux Technology Center] and at least 10 of its Linux developers outside... to delete the AIX and/or Dynix source code from their computers."

Earlier in November, Groklaw published Ransom Love's declaration in the case. Love, founder and former CEO of Caldera, the company that became the modern SCO, said, in brief, that SCO has nothing to its Linux IP (intellectual property) claims.

Full Story.
