If this is true, there is gonna be some doo-doo hitting the fan for Linux
I still think that IBM was the wrong company for them to select as their
target. This is after all a company that was writing computer operating
systems before UNIX existed, with patents to claim rights to much of that
To be able to prove such claims, SCO will need to prove that whole chunks of
code were grafted into Linux. If they can do that, and can prove that IBM did
it, that wouldn't be good for IBM.
