    Talking The end of SCO is near!!!!

    With BayStar frantically trying to pull out of the SCO deal and the Royal Bank of Canada thinking about pulling in their shares, you have to wonder, does this mean the end of SCO?

    If SCO has no money to keep paying it's fancy lawyers (who should be beaten for trying to win on such a case) then it will have no legs to stand on and the battle for linux will be over. Computers geeks around the world will smile and unite as free software has stood up to the big boys (lets not forget our friend IBM, thank you big blue).

    What will become of Microsoft? IBM is definantly going to want some blood after the leaked memo of microsoft telling BayStar to invest in SCO. I perdict you will see IBM, RedHat, Novell (SuSE), and others launching a huge lawsuit against gates and company that might even be able to toppled microsoft once and for all.

    The battle has not yet been won but I see many penguin flags being raised in the future. Will this war be a complete turn around and will the new front be Redmond, Washington? Only time will tell.


    P.S. How stupid do you think Robert Marsh feels now?

    I've sent 200+ ims via instant messengers for people to email the Royal Bank of Canada to withrdraw their investments with SCO. I suggest you all should do the same to help take a sledge hammer to SCO's feet.

    SCO still has a lot of kick in them, I don't expect them to go bankrupt or die off anytime soon, unfortunately.

    Pat H, I have to agree, this company has been around for ages, i doubt they will fall with one blow.

    SCO will not die off quickly, it is a fatal wound though if RBC pulls their investments, and SCO will slowly bleed to death. Another fun analogy is a jenga stack, and RBC just pulled a peice out of the bottom, they are now balancing on 1 small rectangle... woot

    If they have no money to fight their linux war then we all know that they are doomed.

    This SCO has only been around since 2002 when Daryl renamed Caldera to The SCO Group. The original Santa Cruz Operations died when it was bought out by Caldera in 2001. I expect them to die quickly when their lawsuit is thrown out of court and countersued. SCO has been falling down since Daryl was named CEO.
