    Killing Linux

    My favorite computer pundit, John C. Dvorak has written an article about the death of Linux. Interesting article, even if you disagree with his assessments.

    Cheers

    True, to a point. I think, in all honesty, that this little escapade is a carefully crafted media event to drive the sale of SCO.

    Of the 4 scenrios outlined I still find D to be the most plausable.

    SCO has put a HUGE dent in Open Source and Linux that's for sure - but even with that I think development will continue and backing from big firms will continue to arrise. Afterall HP, Compaq and IBM are making a killing on Linux.

    I like readin the guys articles too, but he is such a M$ junkie its not funny. He always tries to bash linux when he can, look at the article title "Killing LInux" what a joke

    I think we are all at a wait and see stance with this.....while I dont think SCO has any strong ground to stand on, if they do, the results will be peril. I think this article strives to change your opinion that MS has something to do with it all.

    He doesnt do a good job at it

    Dvorak (sorta like pb said) is a major MS fan boi. I wouldnt be surprised if he is on their payroll.

    Linux may never become mainstream or the popular choice, but it will never die.

    SCO: Unix is Ours
    SCO announced this morning that a paralegal had uncovered a document, Amendment No. 2 to the Asset Purchase Agreement dated October 16, 1996 that SCO claims clarifies that the Asset Purchase Agreement between Novell and SCO dated September 19, 1995 did indeed give them "all rights to the UNIX and UnixWare technology, including the copyrights, were transferred to SCO."

    The latest news of the case.

    Even if Novell sold the 'copyright's' to SCO, SCO never filed it.
    From what I've been told, that is like buying a house and never registering the deed at the county assesor's office.
    If that is the case, Novell still holds the copyright's in question until SCO files them. Which would make their lawsuit premature and get it tossed out.
    I just talking out my arse though.
