Well. Intersting. SCO seems bent on building up more ill-will than Microsoft in a fraction of the time. Speaking of whom, what very large computer software company would benefit from the untimely death of Linux?

On the other hand, what loud-mouthed, pushy software company will fold up like a cheap suitcase when everyone totally abandons the version of Linux that is purported to have infringing code in it?

They're a couple of interesting questions. The final count is not in, so it's a little early to start handing out bandages and bosy bags. One thing seems certain: SCO salesmen are going to be as popular as an RIAA audit at a music piracy convention.
