A close look at SCO's announcement doesn't help. Rather it further confuses the issue by including the following:
- "SCO is in the enviable position of owning the UNIX operating system," said Darl McBride, president and CEO, SCO.
- SCO, SCOsource, UnixWare and the associated SCO logo are trademarks or registered trademarks of Caldera International, Inc. in the U.S. and other countries.
- UNIX, used under an exclusive license, is a registered trademark of The Open Group in the United States and other countries.
- Linux is a registered trademark of Linus Torvalds.
- Until recently, didn't Caldera sell Linux? (Is this the reason they stopped?)
- What about Sun/Oracle/SCO/Microsoft's exerimentation with Linux? Are they next?
- SCO is laying claim to all Unix. Are they going to want licensing fees from Linux users too?
- Or is all this just like the recent patent problems?
