Well, any (likely failing) company who would rather litigate and "play the
US legal system as a lottery" (as Torvalds put it) instead of investing in
engineering to build/improve their own product.

Nice! BTW, did you know the case is still ongoing? Check out
https://www.ca10.uscourts.gov/opinions/16/16-4040.pdf . Section G begins
with "We are now almost fifteen years into this litigation."

As silly as SCO's claims were, last I heard (years ago) IBM had spent over
a hundred million dollars on the case.
