SCO Withdraws Asset Sale Motion (Without Prejudice)

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 SCO has withdrawn its motion, the "emergency" motion, to sell its 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


York Proposes to Take Over SCO's Unix/Linux Lawsuits

,----[ Quote ]
| What this amounts to is that, in the event that SCO goes back into 
| bankruptcy. York would get its loan money out of what was left of the company 
| ahead of any and all other debtors and without having to go through the 
| bankruptcy courts.   



Did Microsoft ruin SCO?

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.     


Stricken SCO to lay off 16 workers

,----[ Quote ]
| The Lindon-based SCO Group Inc. says it is planning to lay off 16 of its 123 
| employees and has asked a federal bankruptcy court to keep their identities 
| secret because it fears they could be harassed.   


The Goldfarb Declaration - Updated: MS Statement

,----[ Quote ]
| According to the Declaration, Richard Emerson was not the only
| Microsoft employee Goldfarb was dealing with in connection with the
| BayStar investment in SCO. He mentions by name two others, from two
| other departments.


,----[ Quote ]
| "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."
