Long Lost Lawsuit
Apparently, SCO, who was funded by Microsoft to sue Novell over certain important UNIX IP, has lost. This is an old lawsuit that I had almost forgotten about or thought was settled. In a long opinion granting summary judgment to Novell, the District of Utah also granted Novell the royalties that SCO earned by licensing the IP to Microsoft and Sun. That's right, the money Microsoft paid to bankroll the law---er---license certain technologies from SCO is going to Novell. Teh awesome.
