I wouldn't take this all that lightly. There has been mention on this in PC
and trade rags over the last several weeks by "non alarmist" writers (i.e.
the ones that are measured in what they say on a normal basis). MS is
notorious for their antics. And Sun also settled with SCO too. SCO is now
run by total losers and is making virtually no money from product. It has
decimated it's R&D budget and as has been noted in the trade press, that is
interesting for a software company. They are playing with the stock price.
Ironically it comes out last week that SCO had acquired Vultus Inc. (a Web
service business) and they do the deal in newly issued STOCK ($3 million
worth)! And the stock was cashed out ! By who ? The Canopy Group, majority
owner of Vultus and guess who else Canopy controls ? SCO ! This is Ray
Noorda's personal investment fund. This is all in Frank Hayes' 7/28/2003
"The Back Page" column in Computer World. Very interesting read. Nice way to
make money. As Frank notes, it sounds very much like a shell game.
