[chox] Why SCO will soon be going after BSD

| Why SCO will soon be going after BSD
| [...]
| SCO is going to attack the 1994 AT&T/BSD settlement. That's a very
| interesting item that the few favored analysts (and only a select few
| journalists) who were allowed to ask questions failed to pick up on.
| Here's our take on why SCO is embarking on this new course of action:
| SCO has steadfastly refused to get specific about infringement of its
| IP. That's probably not because they are coy, but rather because they
| can't. The few snippets of code it dared to make public already have
| been laughed off the stage and quite thoroughly debunked. With both IBM
| and Red Hat now demanding in court that SCO show its cards, the company
| came to realization that it was either at the end of the trail or that
| it had to broaden its horizons.
| They've chosen the latter. CEO Darl McBride, in fact, used the term
| "broad and deep" several times in his remarks, and that was no accident.
| Since they cannot show infringement of SCO Unix code, SCO now plans to
| challenge the 9-year-old settlement between AT&T and BSD. If it can
| successfully do that, then its claims that Linux contains tainted code
| can be substantiated. If it can't, SCO is dead meat.
