Microsoft-Backed SCO is Still Attacking Linux

Summary: SCO case not over yet, and it remains unclear who's still subsidising the case

The SCO case "rises from the grave again," says today's headline from the British media (which broke the story). This story looks like it could be from 2009, 2010 and all the way to 2016. It just never ends. Where does the funding even come from?



"Well, SCO rises from the grave or maybe the reporting was just not accurate. We have been told this for 7 years and even 2 months ago we doubted this was the end of it all."Well, SCO rises from the grave or maybe the reporting was just not accurate. We have been told this for 7 years and even 2 months ago we doubted this was the end of it all. The reason we didn't really believe it's the end of all that litigation is Groklaw's pattern (or media quoting Groklaw) of stating it's all pretty much over. Groklaw is still uploading PDFs which relate to this case and British media cites them (magically knowing where files are located). To quote The Inquirer: "In a filing, Judge David Nuffer argued that "the nature of the claims are such that no appellate court would have to decide the same issues more than once if there were any subsequent appeals", effectively suggesting that the case had more than run its course.

"On 1 March, that filing was backed up by the judge's full explanation, declaring IBM the emphatic victor in the long-running saga.

""IT IS ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that pursuant to the orders of the court entered on July 10, 2013, February 5, 2016, and February 8, 2016, judgment is entered in favour of the defendant and plaintiff's causes of action are dismissed with prejudice," stated the document.

"To successfully E.E.E. something you must give the impression of good intentions.""Now, though, SCO has filed yet again to appeal that judgment, although the precise grounds it is claiming haven't yet been disclosed."

It also states that “it’s unclear who continues to bankroll the case.” Well, maybe ask Microsoft. It insists that it "loves Linux" while pulling an E.E.E. on it (even just a few hours ago). To successfully E.E.E. something you must give the impression of good intentions.

"...Microsoft wished to promote SCO and its pending lawsuit against IBM and the Linux operating system. But Microsoft did not want to be seen as attacking IBM or Linux."

--Larry Goldfarb, BayStar, key investor in SCO approached by Microsoft
