Business Is War!


Tommorow i will be officially filing a class action lawsuit with 4 other parties against SCO. As jeremy saw me and my friends dont much like SCO we were selling anti-sco shirts at Defcon and LinuxWorld. Well 20% of all money i have made in the last 6 months i have dedicated to this suit although im doing alot of fee waiving but civil court isnt close to cheap the attorney was pricey.


If you dislike SCO but dont wanna goto court over it then you can still help the many people battling SCO i reccomend doing one of the following.

1) Donot use any SCO products and urge your employers never to sign with SCO.
2) Always support true Open Source Linux "Free"
3) Dont buy as much MS products MS recently made a contribution to SCO =(.
4) Donate to LQ because they rock and if you want check out my shop http://www.cafeshops.com/novawear which i am donating for the next several weeks all cash to my "open" class action suit being filed in the Superior Court of the County of San Francisco tommorow morning.

SCO's getting out of the OS business, from all account's I've seen. They claim IP problems, but have also been knocking off their VAR's, in the U.S. and abroad.

No, the mice kind of blow. After a few months of fairly heavy use, the wheels tend to lock up, making skimming a PITA.

I've only had one M$ mouse ... it's long gone ... now I'm still using my first Logitech mouse since I bought it in 1997, and all the buttons, the mouse wheel still work

Well, my keyboard's a Logi and v.nice too, but my mouse is an A4tech optical one and also pretty fine. Doesn't feel quite as solid as a Logi, but it's still a pretty decent rodent.
