SCO and IBM Serve Expert Rebuttal Reports on Each Other
Friday, September 01 2006 @ 04:58 AM EDT

Both SCO and IBM served each other their Experts Rebuttal Reports by the August 28th deadline, and their Certificates of Service are available on Pacer now. Here they are as PDFs:
SCO's

IBM's

As you'll notice, SCO seemed to feel a need to rebut a lot more than IBM, or at least they used more people to do the job. If you don't remember all the experts' names, we can briefly review. Here's the funny part. After all SCO's talk about MIT deep divers, the only MIT people that show up in the case seem to be on IBM's side of the aisle.

The complete list of IBM's experts is here. Additional information on Dr. Randall Davis can be found here. There is also an interesting article about him here. Would you like to see a picture? Here you go, along with his MIT bio. More information on Brian Kernighan can be found in this PDF, his declaration filed in 2004. Here's his bio page at Princeton University and at Bell Labs. And here is one of the books he's written, the one he wrote in 1988 with Dennis Ritchie, who wrote Unix with Ken Thompson. You can find information on Professor J. R. Kearl here. He's the expert on economics, a professor at Princeton, the one whose resume fills 11 pages.

SCO's experts are listed here, with links to biographical info. Additional information on Marc Rochkind is here. I note that SCO's expert, Dr. Thomas Cargill, is not too shy to rebut three of IBM's experts -- Davis, Kernighan and M. Frans Kaashoek. Kaashoek is a computer science professor at MIT. Dr. Peter Salus informs us that he is "also quite expert on the *comparison* of OSes." Information on Dr. Cargill is here, where SCO describes his expertise by saying he is "a software consultant and former computer science professor and UNIX developer." That page also has Dr. Evan Ivie's credentials.

I see SCO didn't find any expert to rebut Andrew Morton. Well. Really, who could they possibly find who credibly could? Linus? I think *he's* unlikely to help SCO out.

I thought about doing a table, with all the experts listed and their bios, so you could compare the two sides' arsenals, but it felt mean.
