LXer: How SCO helped Linux

Published at LXer:

By drawing so much attention to Linux, and failing so spectacularly to find any legal flaw in it, SCO has actually helped Linux's business acceptance. In 2003, Linux was an important operating system... if you were in love with technology. Most of the business world was keeping its distance. SCO's attack on Linux, however, had two immediate effects that would work to Linux's long term benefit: It reunified the Linux community and businesses against a common enemy and Linux was once more in the public spotlight.
