SCO No Longer Matters
Opinion: Like a broken-back snake, SCO still gets attention, but its court cases are dead for all practical purposes.You may have noticed that I dont cover news about the , Linux, Novell, et al. much anymore. Theres a reason for that: SCO doesnt matter anymore. Oh, its not like theres no news coming out of the courtrooms anymore. There is. For example, there was a recent story about SCO accusing IBM of destroying evidence by "[directing] dozens of its Linux developers within its LTC [Linux Technology Center] and at least 10 of its Linux developers outside ... to delete the AIX and/or Dynix source code from their computers."
Earlier in November, Groklaw published Ransom Loves declaration in the case. Love, founder and former CEO of Caldera, the company that became the modern SCO, said, in brief, that SCO has nothing to its Linux IP (intellectual property) claims.
