    SCO now Backing Down

    SCO now says that they did not want to kill Linux, the just want the court to appoint someone to prevent IP from going into Linux.

    This is just because their scam against IBM and others did not work. I think Linux Free Software group should claim Unix as OpenSource because SCO included Linux in their software illegally. SCO can't sue anyone. They should just die in peace. No one in the OS world (except crooked Microsoft) will have any respect for them now.

    • Notice that McBride says

      "We can sit there and talk to IBM all day long, but if in fact users are running systems that have basically pirated software inside of there, or stolen software inside of their systems, they have liability. We're not saying that they created that liability; we think there are a number of parties along the way that generated that. But we feel like we have an absolute requirement to let them know what was going on as we went down this path."

      Now if you notice that, nowhere in there there is a statement saying that Linux has pirated any code.
      It simply says there are pirated software out there. Let it be Windows, Mac , Linux , whatever ....
      But NOT one word about Linux specifically.

      This is another example of vague implications.

      This is like saying you will be rich if you buy my product , because there are millionaires living in Florida.

      That SCUMBAG McBride thinks he can suck up to the Linux community now? What a fucking idiot. This made me laugh:

      "The point about open source that I believe is really cool is this notion that you have thousands of eyes around the world looking at a similar problem, and obviously when you have more people focused on something, you can solve things better, To the extent you take that model and solve problems better and create ultimately a better computing environment that solves a lot of application problems and makes life better for everybody, that's the part of open source I believe is really cool."

      Quite a bit different than Linux being a BICYCLE and SCO Unix being a "luxury car".

      I hope IBM rips his head off and sticks it up his ass - that will get his cranium closer to his brain.
