read it properly.

microsoft paid over 100mil for unix rights they dont actually have unless the linux guys say so, and that money has to be transfered to novel-suse linux :)

similar thing with sun.

SCO stocks are going to make sgi look like a good investment on monday! :lol:

It's about time someone handed SCO's ass to them on a platter. This makes me pretty damn happy about how things will look for *nix'x future. 8)

yea, but what i liked was this:

sco asked novel for the rights, so they knew they didnt have them.

then they sold licenses to microsoft & sun.
isnt that fraud???

i tell you one thing, it's upto novel-suse whether they honor those bogus licenses - so those company's better keep it polite! :P

one other thing ofcourse, all those company's around the world who paid for a linux license can now prosecute for fraud.
note that i said prosecute, and not sue.

*prison* is pretty standard for people guilty of fraud! :D

oops - i almost forgot, 10,000 counts of pergery in the courts.

maybe we'll see some orange jumpsuits on cnn-buisiness section again. :lol:
