Shame on me. I was sure that when SCO fired anti-Linux zealot and CEO Darl McBride, that Edward Cahn, the Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Court Trustee would kill off SCO’s IBM lawsuit as a waste of money for a company that’s been bleeding red-ink for years. I was wrong.
According to a Salt Lake Tribune report, Cahn told U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross that “SCO’s claims against IBM and Novell “should be pursued aggressively.”
You’ve got to be kidding me. I predicted that Cahn would want to continue the Novell lawsuit. After all, as it is, no one knows who really owns Unix’s intellectual property. Unix’s ownership is a big deal. If Novell owns it, then SCO has nothing left of any real value. But IBM? Come on!
