It is on our shoulders, each and every one of us, to help combat the SCO FUD. There’s so much good debunking material out there that it should be easy for people to plop it on the boss’s desk or forward an email with a list of juicy links. Since a lot of people aren’t going to take the time (or just don’t have the time) to collect these, I thought I’d pull together a listing of material with the help of some research and my readers.
Perhaps I should informally title this press kit, “SCO: Refute THIS”:
- OSDL’s position paper on SCO and Linux.
- MontaVista’s statement on SCO
- SCO’s Web server runs on Linux?
- Novell’s latest statement on SCO
- Inconsistencies abound from SCO

- What about those MIT experts that verified SCO’s claims?
- An attorney on SCO’s claims

- Sun playing both sides of the fence?
- An in-depth analysis of the supposedly stolen code
- From the people who claim now that they never planned to sue anyone
- Oh yeah, and they never planned to sue anyone
- McBride claims that people who have put years of blood, sweat, and tears into Linux are only up in arms because IBM is organizing it

- Yet more SCO code claim debunking
