Rumour has it that SCO produce nothing of value and just want to be
bought by IBM.

As it happens, this would make SCO's current shareholders' pockets
rather well lined. I doubt IBM would have any cause to want to own
SCO beyond making the problem go away - so commence the litigation!

I'm quite relaxed and looking forward to seeing the outcome.
