I'm sure its not a conspiracy. It doesn't need to be and it would be foolish on
Microsoft's part to make it one but actually contacting SCO and "arranging"
this as any other than a straight-forward licensing of SCO technology.

Microsoft's people in charge of deciding to do this transaction did
not miss the fact that they would be helping themselves by assisting in
creating more issues for Linux adopters.

Microsoft's business managers are anything but stupid.
