SCO vs. IBM looks like it's over for good

Long Live Linux !


The long-running SCO vs. IBM case looks like it might just be over.

A new filing scooped up by the good folks at Groklaw sees both SCO and IBM agree to sign off on two recent decisions in which SCO's arguments advancing its claims to own parts of Unix were slapped down by the US District Court.

As The Register reads the PDF we've linked to above, and our informal legal counsel concurs, the new document describes IBM and SCO both signing off on the recent court orders. Those orders left SCO without a legal argument to stand on.

The new filing also points out that SCO remains bankrupt and has “has de minimis financial resources beyond the value of the claims on which the Court has granted summary judgment for IBM.”

Or in plain English, SCO is broke and the only asset it possess of any value is its claims against IBM, and now it doesn't even have those because it just lost a court case about them. That leaves SCO in no position to carry on.

About bloody time. How long has this garbage been drawn out for now? Way more than a decade wasted on this rubbish.

SCO burned through cash like a drunk sailor hoping to score a huge payout from the lawsuits. Darl McBride was the ignorant fool that made that death spiral decision.
