    I doubt that it is authentic. Somehow the language is wrong... It reads like it was written by a Bulgarian script kiddie on Redbull, though of course the world is a strange place and who knows??

    Good point, but why would slashdot publish a doc by a script kiddie as would ODSL ????

    I don't get it...
    There must be something......

    Hmmm interesting. I must admit that I don't know anything about Slashdot. I'm still fairly new at Linux. Is this site all it seems? It depends on their editorial policy. Do they control their content carefully?

    Slashdot is a know news site among many *nix users and admins.

    I've never seen them post something that isn't checked first.

    SCO publicly lies about: Computer Associates, and licenses

    An anonymous reader writes "Blake Stowell, SCO's director of communications, acknowledged that the leaked memo is real." However, Stowell went on to say that the memo was misunderstood, and that Microsoft has not been funding SCO, as was previously alleged. In addition, Computer Associates is now vehemently denying they ever licensed Linux from SCO. AlabamaMike writes "Being employed by Computer Associates myself, I had to admit I was terribly dismayed by the news that the company I work for had licensed SCO's dubious Linux IP. I sent some mail around to those I thought would have some info about what was going on with this very odd move, and the response that came back truly should be posted for the /. community. Basically this is a very creative spin on a settlement CA did with Canopy Group regarding a breach of contract settlement totally unrelated to Linux. Associated with that settlement was a set of UnixWare licenses to which SCO has taken the liberty of attaching these 'Linux IP' licenses."

    Auch, SCO just fell through, publicly lying to stockholders and public.
    This is fuel for IBM and others against SCO.

    Part 2, Return of M$ with SCO.

    Check out these neat stories.
    A leaked memo from a SCO employee, it seems M$ has more to do with SCO than they admit. And look... even the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is now involved.
    Auch, that gotta have some reprecussion on the current lawsuits. If SCO slips and loses the trails, not only SCO will feel the pain, but M$ will too.... They will never the less, but more in terms of counter claims...

    Boy, i think I followed the wrong course at school, took computer sciense instead of law...
