hmm...don't know. it's just so damn stupid thing to fight for some licences just for money, even tough they could make some by _helping_ on this stuff by doing something similar like RedHat (selling some products, while keeping others free).

I think sco has lost it's face now because of this....it's like an arguing child imo.

Food for thought: SCO is a division of Canopy Group. Qt is made by Trolltech, and guess what? Trolltech is another division of Canopy Group. Interesting, isn't it?
