Step Right Up, Ladies and Gentlemen, and Have Your Credit Card Ready
SCO has made it easy for Linux users to buy a liences to continue using Linux, but Groklaw's Pamela Jones, for one, is less then impressed by their licence or their arguments for buying it.SCO would rather you volunteer to buy their license online, so they dont have to risk going after you by mail or using threats, maybe... those pesky laws being how they are. Or maybe they hope to escape the bonds of the GPL this way. Or just maybe they are about to sue some folks, and theyll make them an offer they cant refuse: pay for a license instead of a lawsuit -- its cheaper. It might have worked at one time, but after all the indemnification floating around, I cant see it.
But its up to you, gang. If you want em, you can have em. Licenses! Fresh licenses for sale! They accept credit cards. Do check the EULA, though. No indemnification. Eeek. Oh, and you have to agree to their expansive definition of what their code is made up of. And then there is that little matter of your firstborn.
