SCO Proposes Selling its Mobility "Business"... to Darl McBride - Updated 2Xs

,----[ Quote ]
| SCO's Chapter 11 Trustee Edward Cahn not only 
| proposes to let Ralph Yarro "loan" some money 
| to the company at what Novell calls 
| egregiously inequitable terms -- inequitable 
| to everyone but Ralph Yarro and the gang, 
| that is -- but now he proposes to sell SCO's 
| "mobility business", which not long ago SCO 
| said was worth millions, if I recall 
| correctly, to another SCO insider, Darl 
| McBride, for $35,000.
| [...]
| Update 2: Get a load of the assets going for 
| $35,000. Not only do the copyrights and the 
| source code go to the buyer, but there are 12 
| servers in the deal, 13 domain names, and 10 
| developer smartphonees. You find the list in 
| Exhibit C Part 6, which begins with a list of 
| the source code products involved in this 
| transaction, but I notice something else.

SCO thrashes on

| According to a Salt Lake Tribune report,
| Cahn told U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross
| that "SCO's claims against IBM and Novell
| 'should be pursued aggressively.'"
| You've got to be kidding me. I predicted
| that Cahn would want to continue the Novell
| lawsuit. After all, as it is, no one knows
| who really owns Unix's intellectual
| property. Unix's ownership is a big deal. If
| Novell owns it, then SCO has nothing left of
| any real value. But IBM? Come on!
| We've known, not suspected, known for years
| that SCO's core copyright claims about IBM
| copying parts of Unix into Linux aren't
| true. No one who has read over any of the
| publicly available evidence thinks
| otherwise, except for SCO loyalists.
| I can only presume that Cahn hasn't really
| looked at the case. He seems to believe that
| underneath all of SCO's copyright smoke
| there had to be some fire. Sorry, there's
| not even a spark.
