 From Bruce Perens:

For the past several months, Intel had been listed as "Gold Sponsor" of 
"SCO Forum 2003", SCO's Las Vegas trade show. Now, Intel appears to have 
quietly withdrawn its support for the show. SCO's web site, at 
http://www.sco.com/2003forum/sponsors.html , has replaced Intel with CRN 
as "Gold Sponsor. Press organizations like CRN generally don't have big 
bucks on hand for trade show sponsorship, and I surmise that they are 
listed there only as a place-holder to prevent embarassment for SCO.

     HP is still listed as "Premier Sponsor" of the SCO event, despite 
criticism from just about everyone associated with Linux and Open Source.

Its time to let Carly know how we feel about their SCO support:
