    I like this quote. It sums the whole situation up:

    this is a Hail Mary pass from a company that the market has passed by

    I think this quote puts it into a hollywood centric view:
    So lets see they have torqed off. IBM, US goverment, Novell, Tivo, Red Hat, EFF, and every linux fan boy out there. Not a group I would want on my bad side. Oh this should get VERY interesting. Thought this soap opera had died down. This is almost as good as springer, and SCO has started waving a chair around.

    This is not the way to go to be bought out. What makes a company attractive to a buy out is their assets. The problem with SCO is that it seems they do not have anything to offer as a product that would be worthy of a buy out. This is a last ditch effort by a failing company. SCO has nothing to loose and they know it, which is why they took a shot at IBM, a company that has tons of money. This is the reason why they won't back down, if they do it's over. They have to see everything through to the end and hope they get lucky somewhere. Although that is highly unlikely, it is still a possibility.
