I’m in a grouchy mood today, but I’ll do my best to just be straight to the point. SCO is now billing selected Linux users for licensing fees. There are a ton of companies and organizations out there that use, support, develop, and otherwise are heavily involved with Linux. Why has no one stepped in to obtain swift court-ordered injunctions against this behavior? SCO has not proven their case in court. They have no right to try to profiteer off the backs of the open source community until a judge is able to properly determine what is going on.
Consider this a challenge to every company that uses or develops for Linux. It’s time to walk your talk. SCO has been allowed too long to get away with these shenanigans.
And a note to the crackers and DOS-attackers who think it’s fun and satisfying to to after SCO: please quit it. You just make them look better, and us look worse.
What is your company or organization doing to help?
