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. > If anybody on list is interested, I gave a presentation on the SCO > litigation to a local LUG in April.2005. > > http://recipes4linux.com/os-presentations/2005apr.pdf 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.
