The only real question about this move is ... what took them so long? Apparently they only just realized that (gasp!) Novell sells Linux (another gasp!). I mean, come on, Novell selling Linux? Who knew? Indeed, SCO threatened to sue Novell back when the word first came out that the venerable networking operating system company was trying to buy SUSE. Nothing came of it, but that was just the calm before the storm.
Later, Novell registered the copyrights to Unix, which are at the heart of SCOs case against IBM.
