Did anybody hear the name "Microsoft"? That's just rich
(pun). Microsoft buys UNIX machines from SCO to fund its
lawsuits, apart from the money that's funnelled off sight.
Now, you see, Microsoft could empty its pockets, just as it
did with the XBox/ 360, only to keep SCO alive in court.
This ongoing FUD buys Microsoft some more days of forced
sales, before its inevitable demise. Someone should tell
Bullmer (sic) and his bullish company that BSD is a possible
Open Source contenderwinner as well. Maybe if Microsoft
bought some BSD code for Vista/Singularity, that could
weaken the real enemy (GNU/Linux and OSS), too. Apple calls
its BSD "Leopard". Microsoft could call it "Windows Spots".
It'll be very spotty...
