What's the downside for SCO?  Nothing.  They have nothing to lose.  What are
people going to do, stop buying their products?  People were already doing
that before the lawsuit.

The most dangerous opponent in any endeavor, business included, is one who
has nothing to lose.  Their actions are not rational because they have
nothing to lose.  OTOH, the potential upside is huge.
