SCO Basing Strategy on Groklaw Commentary

,----[ Quote ]
| Embattled “software” company SCO (NASDAQ: delisted) has been formulating its
| legal and corporate strategy by reading the popular website Groklaw, and
| doing the exact opposite of what readers suggest.

SCO, the Verb

,----[ Quote ]
| The sad part of all of this is that Microsoft learned no lesson from
| their misadventures with The SCO Group. It is not a logical or
| healthy business practice to threaten to sue your own customers,
| and as Microsoft well knows, most Linux customers are also
| Microsoft customers.
| And why does Microsoft do this? Don't most holders of IP who think
| someone's software is infringing go after the vendor producing the
| allegedly infringing code? I will leave you to ponder the possibilities.

A five year deal with Microsoft to dump Novell/SUSE

,----[ Quote ]
| Wake up little SUSE, Wake up. No, that's not good enough. Wake up
| SUSE customers, wake up. Novell is jeopardizing the future of Linux
| for its own short-term rewards. If you want to see Linux flourish,
| let alone survive after Novell's five year deal with Microsoft
| expires, I suggest we make an alternative five year deal with
| Microsoft.
