SCO: Fish or Cut Bait
Well, now it seems that not only was SCO lying about their claim that Linux developers had stolen code from them…
… it also now seems that they knew it wasn’t true all along… and that they were (shock) doing it to make it harder for a competitor (Red Hat) to compete.
In short, they were failing in their business and wanted to try to make money by trashing everyone else. Nice guys. (Not!)
