We happen to have discovered an old video which features Darl McBride. In this video he explains how Linux allegedly stole UNIX code. In retrospect, the video demonstrates and exposes nothing but strategy-motivated lying.
Needless to mention, SCO’s financial ties with Microsoft are no longer secret. And given Microsoft’s recent saber rattling, which is fuelled by Novell’s mistake and overlaps that of SCO’s baseless accusations, this video might be worth watching.
Novell is to Linux what Darl McBride was to SCO. It mat be a case where an entity or an individual is lured to become a ‘puppet authority’ which misrepresents many developers and customers. Perhaps Microvell is also to the Linux community what MicroSCOft was to IBM-vell at the time — a paracite who is seeking money through proxies and secret negotiations.
