Throughout 2003, the SCO Group's so-called evidence and legal theories have fallen into disrepute though the rediscovery of the combination of the terms of the GNU General Public License and the open development process of both the Linux Kernel and even UNIX itself.
The weight of the historical evidence, including the active participation of both old SCO and Caldera executives and employees in the development and promotion of Linux, tips the scales of justice heavily in favor of IBM, RedHat and Linux end users. In fact the weight of evidence effectively chucks SCO legal position off the scales, out the window and over the cliff like a cartoon catapult.

While each new Darl McBrides threat and new David Boies partners legal theory look impressive at first glance, in practice they are about effective as attaching a giant anvil to a biplane to catch a pigeon.

See http://www.tibonia.com/Dmeg1.htm

Bois you snickering legal type hound,
When court time is needed, you're never around!
Those millions you ripped from SCO's legal chest,
Should be there for bungling at which you are best!
So, Stop The Penguin, Stop The Penguin,Stop The Penguin,Stop The Penguin,Stop The Penguin, Stop The Penguin, Stop That Penguin
How?
Sue them! Mud them! Fud them! Charge them!
Stop That Penguin
Now!
You Stowell, start fudding it's worth the chance,
For some will believe by the lies that you plants!
And Kevin, you invent me a legaly-bob,
That catches that Penguin, or I lose my job!
So, Stop The Penguin, Stop The Penguin,Stop The Penguin,Stop The Penguin,Stop The Penguin,Stop The Penguin, Stop That Penguin
How?
Sue them! Mud them! Fud them!
Charge them!
Stop That Penguin
Now!

SCO-wise, going back one extra month, it's fascinating looking at what's happened since June 9, 2003, since we are now up to January 5, 2004.

1) No company using AIX has taken a license from SCOX

2) Boies and Co. aren't really on contingency (from the SCOX SEC statements)

3) This (http://www.linuxworld.com/story/20911.htm) is the only article I've found that states Ms. DiDio used to work for Novell and knows McBride and Sontag. This is a very significant point, and one that Ms. DiDio should mention whenever she writes about SCOX. That she does not do so, and that her analysis could lead investors to consider SCOX a good buy may not be criminal but it at the very least is careless.
