I hear SCO has removed the binutils package Groklaw told you about on Monday. They may think that means their ELF troubles are over or at least ameliorated. I don't think so.
Meanwhile, here's a highlight from an article by Bob Mims in the Salt Lake Tribune, mostly on the slide in the value of SCO's stock since Judge Wells' recent ruling, called "Market slide: SCO Group's stock falls to $2.28 per share":
Market-watchers said Tuesday that unless SCO succeeds in getting U.S. District Judge Dale Kimball to review and overturn Wells - a rare occurrence - it appears the company's future will be dismal.
"This is now no more than a case study, albeit a very important one, for the software industry," said Stuart Cohen, CEO of the pro-Linux Open Source Development Labs. "It shows that Linux and open source [freely distributed] software are bigger than any one company. "Linux has won in the courts and is winning in the marketplace. SCO . . . is dead. This plan [of litigation] didn't work at all, and now they are paying the price."
SCO is a case study, all right. None of the shareholders were willing to talk to Mims or were unavailable, but he did interview some analysts, and no, not that one. I think you'll find it worth reading. It's kind of a milestone.
Also, just to let you know, the Red Hat judge is stirring again. Pacer records that there will be another telephone conference in September:
Set Deadlines/Hearings: Telephone Conference set for 9/6/2006 08:30 AM before Honorable Sue L. Robinson. (rld, ) (Entered: 07/31/2006)
Of course, IBM has done all the heavy lifting already. So that will have to tide you over until I can finish the next in our series of articles. Hint: I started thinking about lxrun and what it is for, remembering that it was released under the GPL.
