SCO Won't Be Letting Go, Oh No No

,----[ Quote ]
| Last month we brought you the astonishing news that someone actually wanted 
| to by SCO, the now-bankrupt perennial thorn-in-the-side of the Linux 
| community. As of today, the joke is — again — on them, as they've had to 
| hightail it in reverse with their tail between their legs.   


SCO President Darl McBride: 'It's Not the End of the Line'

SCO Withdraws Asset Sale Motion (Without Prejudice)

,----[ Quote ]
| Wow. SCO has withdrawn its motion, the "emergency" motion, to sell its 
| assets.  


Did Microsoft ruin SCO?

| Which comes to the scenario in mind. Gates approaches McBride and puts forth 
| a proposition that SCO should try and make money out of Linux. He offers to 
| bankroll the operation in a backhanded manner and then steps back to watch 
| the action unfold. His reasoning for doing this? To have a test run before he 
| puts Microsoft through the same paces. Either way he wins.

| "There you have it. At least a third of SCO's entire market
| capitalization, and their entire current cash reserves, is payoffs
| funnelled from Microsoft. Their 10Qs reveal that every other line of
| cash inflow is statistical noise by comparison. The brave new
| SCO source business model is now clear: sue your customers, shill
| for Microsoft, kite your stock, and pray you stay out of jail."
