    SCO is trying to bite off more than it can chew. IBM, Novell, Linux. It's trying too battle too many giants. So, it needs support from somewhere or else it will be in a soup over the legal expenses it incurrs. And if they loose one of the cases, it's end of the chapter for them IMO.
    I guess this is a move by SCO to win over MS rather. And there's no love lost between MS and IBM.

    Looks who's joined the ring now!! It's Microsoft!! M$ wants to further undermine the
    credibility of Linux O.S!! This way M$ can sell more Windows products including it's
    O.S & reduce Linux penetration this way.

    BTW, it's a quite old article. It was published in 2003. So, quite a few things have happened since then.
    I dunno just missed the date previously.
