SCOs Discovery-Go-Round Keeps Spinning
SCO's attempts to discover evidence in its case against IBM and its possible placement of Unix code in Linux have not come to an end.Well, you have to give The SCO Group credit for persistence, if nothing else. In recent weeks, SCO has expanded its search to find evidence that it might be able to use in its case against IBM. After what has seemed like an endless series of discovery motions, SCOs latest demand, dated Feb. 1, is that IBM once more be required to deliver information to SCO that will allow the Unix company to "assess the issues and damages at the heart of this case."
Specifically, SCO wants documents showing IBMs AIX, Dynix and Linux revenues and profits; IBMs internal numbers on its market share for each of these operating systems; and how many IBM customers have migrated from Unix to Linux.
