Who exactly is left standing who played a part?
SCO are dead.
There's Sun, now part of Oracle. RH might enjoy embarassing Oracle a
There's certainly Microsoft.
There's BayStar Investments:
Rob Enderle and Maureen O'Gara.
That hinky Salt Lake tech analyst cum reporter,
His former site pages are gone:
http://www.politis.com/ (the whole site's dead)
Laura DiDio and the Yankee Group (though I believe she left them).
Currently with ITIC? Or more likely _is_ ITIC.
Daniel Lyons publicly recanted his initial support for SCO.
Other than Microsoft and Oracle, mostly small fry.
Lawsuits cost. It'd be fun to watch, and IBM & RH have pursued this
quite a ways. It would be interesting for them to pursue a
scorched-earth policy, though I don't know if the business case is
compelling or not.
