Well, another shoe has dropped. SCO announced that it will announce (yes) pricing for corporate Linux users (individuals apparently are getting away with a free ride).
Of course the more rabid among the Slashdot crowd are already howling at the moon. Gosh, we don't even know what the cost is yet and we're already angry? Suppose it's reasonable? Oh, well.
Anyway, there's the on-going noise about SCO losing its rights because of selling Caldera Linux under the GPL. I don't think the GPL has been well tested in court yet, and certainly not from this point of view. Courts tend to favor property rights and will probably take a very dim view of the GPL, so I really doubt there's anything to that.
Got something to add? Send me email.
