They've chosen the latter. CEO Darl McBride, in fact, used the term
"broad and deep" several times in his remarks, and that was no accident.
Since they cannot show infringement of SCO Unix code, SCO now plans to
challenge the 9-year-old settlement between AT&T and BSD. If it can
successfully do that, then its claims that Linux contains tainted code
can be substantiated. If it can't, SCO is dead meat.

SCO will lose and they will get dumped by everybody. But then again, folks
in California voted Arnold into power, so who knows what's going to happen.

I have basically come to 2 conclusions.

1) We live in the Matrix.
2) Salvadore Dali's paintings are an accurate reflection of reality and life
as we know it is a lie.


I will switch ALL of my coding efforts to the Microsoft platform before I work
on any SCO bullshit. Then I will make plans to do something else with my
career choice because clearly its not possible to be a sane person in a sane
society where this crap is allowed.

Perhaps I should just move to Europe...

All you can do is keep coding and hope that IBM/RedHat sort all of this out.
