| SCO didn't gain much from the suit, at least not in the long term (its OTC
| stock trades between a nickel and a dime per share this week), but its

| argue more professional) about delineating who has the rights to what.

| with VMware since it’s bundled with RHEL. (Red Hat’s telling people they’ll
| save $20,000-$30,000 a server.)
