| Calling SCO Bull|
I call upon the customers and users of SCO to protest SCO's recent maneuvers.
Their claim (that they own ideas of parts of Unix kernel) is without merit.
I have read the source code for Unix kernel. The critical and essential ideas of Unix kernel management created by Kernighan and Thompson have been in public domain for a long time, have been the subject of dispute and criticism among scholars and students of computer science for decades, and anybody who claims that they own those ideas are lying.
Things you can do to show SCO their place in the world:
Sell your SCO Stock
Buy one (just one) stock of SCO (here's why)
Switch your operating system from SCO to Linux
Stop testing your products against SCO's versions
Advise your customers the evils of doing business with a dishonest vendor.
When a company lets their lawyers dictate their strategies, and doesn't listen when the customers complain, it is destined for trouble. Just ask Unisys what hit them after their GIF patent strategy...
