more on SCO v. Linux

A couple of days ago Microsoft announced that they were going to license SCO's intellectual property. Now, given that Microsoft has as much use for UNIX intellectual property as an airplane has for an extra set of tires in the trunk, it was clear that they were doing it simply to "support" SCO's lawsuit against IBM (and threat of lawsuits against Linux users). Then open source advocate Bruce Perens replied in this opinion piece in A good read overall. Doesn't seem that SCO could be going anywhere with this (specially considering Perens' many arguments against the case), but you never know... it's crazy that this is happening, but I guess that if people can try to sue McDonald's for being overweight, anything's possible...
