What's that odor? Kinda fishy? Kinda off?
Oh come on. SCO gets $100M!? for what exactly? they're a worthless husk now. By the time IBM and Novell finish with them, the 'crown jewels' of UNIX will belong to either IBM or Novell. This fellow and his backers are nuts, all they are doing is bankrolling a losing concern which is in it up to it's neck with legal troubles of it's own making. If they inject any significant funding into SCO, it will simply be frittered away with more pointless jockeying for position in court, followed by any and all assets of SCO being forfeit as damages to both Novell and IBM.
No one throws good money after bad, so why throw good money into a fire-pit? Something doesn't add up here. If SCO has persuaded someone to give them this amount of money, either some great big lies were told to someone, or Boise has a cunning plan for escaping the legal 'shitstorm' they started with zero consequences.
Good grief, I have to go over to Groklaw and see what the great unwashed of the Linux world have to say about this.
Gagh! Where's the biohazard icon when you need it?
