  Well.. this cat will kick a little longer.

While PJ deserves a rest, all the SCO assets (except of the lawsuit 
itself) have been sold since Novell has not appealed the sale. Not sure 
if the sale of Novel to Microsoft friends had something to do with that.

Furthermore, the appeal by SCO is still going on, and while there is 
probably not a lot of life in it, the patient is still in the in the IU 
on the heart-lung machine, but not yet brain dead.

All the while other important things are happening, Novell's patent 
sales to Microsoft and friends.. who knows what consequences this will 
have. We do not know what mischief the new owner of the Unix copyrights 
will want to commit.

Furthermore, Oracle has sued Google over Java, and Microsoft is suing 
everybody but Google over Android.

Maybe SCO is slowly dying, but not before the problems have been forked. 
We still have to be vigilant and put more pressures on legislative 
bodies in several jurisdictions to finally start to fix the broken legal 
system in regard of monopoly rights and innovation prospects.

Just my Canadian 2 cents
