Heh!  I actually wrote a fair amount of that document, back in the day.

What I see Caldera/SCO doing most frequently is, in formal-rhetoric
terms, a combination of begging the question (assuming the answer) 
and misdirection (changing the subject).  That "What if SCO is right?" 
patter is a case in point.

Cheers,                     Chaos, panic, & disorder - my work here is done.
