Yeah, SCO's Linux licenses!

There's been a stampede to sign up:


"...SCO's press release blowing their own horn is here. I see no linux
license sales except the usual suspects, Sun and Microsoft:

"Fourth quarter revenue from UNIX products and services was $14.0
million. In addition, revenue generated from the Company's SCOsource
licensing initiative was $10.3 million, which was derived from
licensing agreements reached with Microsoft Corporation and Sun
Microsystems, Inc. earlier in fiscal 2003..."

SCO, Sun, and Micro$oft.

Interesting bedfellows, eh?
