Quoting that press release (which has also been posted to
http://www.redhat.com/about/presscenter/2003/press_sco.html ):

> Red Hat announced that it filed a formal complaint against The SCO
> Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCOX, "SCO"). The purpose of this complaint is to
> demonstrate that Red Hat's technologies do not infringe any
> intellectual property of SCO and to hold SCO accountable for its
> unfair and deceptive actions.

Not intending to complain in any way about your posting (for which,
thanks), but do you have any idea what "complaint" means in this
context?  It could mean anything from Szulik shooting at McBride a paper
airplane with "You suck" printed on company letter letterhead to a
Federal lawsuit seeking immediate injunctions, etc.

On reflection, vague and vapourous press releases _do_ seem like a
fitting response to SCO.  ;->

"Is it not the beauty of an asynchronous form of discussion that one can go and 
make cups of tea, floss the cat, fluff the geraniums, open the kitchen window 
and scream out it with operatic force, volume, and decorum, and then return to 
the vexed glowing letters calmer of mind and soul?" -- The Cube, forum3000.org
