Q&A: McBride says SCO isn't dead yet, despite legal loss

,----[ Quote ]
| He even invoked Apple Inc.'s comeback from business problems and said that 
| his company has an opportunity for a similar turnaround. 



SCO Could Face Cash Crunch After Novell Trial

,----[ Quote ]
| The amount that SCO owes to Novell is now the primary focus of the case as it 
| moves toward a trial that's slated to start on Sept. 17. SCO's problem: It's 
| potentially on the hook for a sum that exceeds its total cash and assets.  


SCO Tried to Gag Groklaw in 2004

,----[ Quote ]
| So SCO tried to gag Groklaw beginning in 2004. It moved on to
| false insinuations to journalists, ugly innuendo during a conference
| about me and Groklaw, having friendly journalists with PIs try to
| dig up dirt on me, a massive astroturfing campaign all over the
| internet, and then finally to intimidation with their recent motion.
| Well, I'm gagging, all right, but not in a good way, and certainly
| not in the way SCO hoped.
| I will respond like this, seriously for a moment. This is America.
| I am an American citizen. I was born here, born to certain rights
| as my birthright. I'm allowed to cover this litigation without
| being harassed and intimidated or threatened or gagged. I'm
| allowed to present facts that disprove SCO's public allegations.
| I am allowed to write what I believe is the truth, and I'm 
| to present research about the allegations.


SCO on the brink of financial collapse

,----[ Quote ]
| The company's share price had closed at $1.56 on Friday ahead of a court 
| ruling that Novell, and not SCO, was the rightful owner of the copyrights for 
| the Unix operating system. The price remained steady in early trading, 
| however, valuing the company at about $9.5m.   


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."
