Judge finally tells SCO to "put up or shut up"


Ok, not in so many words but he did order SCO to reveal the exact code that IBM supposedly has stolen. Hopefully we've finally reached the endgame of this thing. From Groklaw ala Slashdot:

Quote:
Our first report from a Groklaw volunteer, sam, who attended the court hearing is that IBM won both of its motions to compel and SCO's motion was set for a later date. Here is what sam is telling us, and it's subject to further information and confirmation as more news arrives. We have several attending and I'll do a followup, but this is the first word. Here is what sam is telling us:

"Just returned from the hearing.

"Needless to say there was blood all over the floor on the SCO side of the aisle none on the 'left' side.

"Judge granted both IBM motions to compel, gave SCO thirty days to comply 'with specificity' and suspended further discovery. Did not rule on the SCO motion until next hearing scheduled for Friday, Jan 23 and 10:00 am.

"SCO did say that they will be filing a complaint within days on copyright violations.

"More to come"

So it looks like they have 30 days to finally tell us what code they are talking about "with specificity". Finally.

You might have changed your mind when they sent you a bill for $699 per CPU that is running Linux.

In SCO's case, money talks. I mean, hey, Linux is pushing SCO Unix down the tube and Caldera was a big flop. SCO loved it when Microsoft gave them all that licensing money.

It would be nice if it did in fact signal "endgame" to use Capt_Cavemans words.

Because thus far, even reading so called "expert analysis", it's just been handbags at dawn. With the "he said this" and she said that rubbish.

Even the bit where SCO showed the "example" of stolen code?, was shot down in a shower of shit

Hence it would be nice to think that this could be the light at the end of the tunnel.

Personally, I'm not so sure. If the SCO management, haven't managed to draw all of the "Microsoft money" as "back wages", then there'll always be a lawyer sniffing around for a piece of the action, and so, drag things out a little further.

IMO, that is.

regards

John
