Has anyone read about the SCO Group suing IBM over copyright infringement? The SCO Group owns the intellectual property of Unix; Linux, which IBM loads on its servers, is a variation of Unix (so is OS X). What raised eyebrows earlier this week was that Microsoft paid SCO Group for the license to sell software that connects to Unix. While Microsoft is not involved in the lawsuit, it appears to be supportive of the SCO Group's argument of copyright infringement. Is this another cynical attempt by Microsoft to destroy Linux as a viable alternative to its own operating systems?
