SCO -- You Copied
Linux -- kinda only so many ways to say toUpper (torvalds "some of that original code I wrote --- Terrible"
Novell -- We sold you (SCO) Rights to use it, but not the copyrights to go with it.
Microsoft ---- Here's a settlement for you absurd amount of money (both SCO And Sun)
IBM -- supposedly has backed linux (IBM has the most copyrights and maybe threatening to use them)

To be honest, I feel bad:
in 1977 I was one of the first to switch to UNIX (6th edition); a wonderfull world opened for me.
In 1988 I joined a large company that a.o. made use of SVR5 and later SCO.
I feel betrayed by Bell Labs (and successors) as they just threw pearls for swines and by SCO
who made me sell Caldera, while spitting on LINUX.
Meanwhile, what's the difference now between XP and SuSE 9 ?
Both are hard to get running what you need.
Open source? Ever tried to collect all the needed RPMs?
Utopia has vanished.
I can only hope JAVA has a better life (during my carrier).
Thanks for the points.
;JOOP!
