In the letters section of last weeks LWN edition (it will become public this
thursday for non-subscribers) there was a letter from someone in england who
tried ringning SCO UK and SCO europein order to purchase a licence (he
wanted to see how one would go about it, he wasnt actually intending to do
so) for linux from SCO. Basically he found it wasnt possible, no sales
people he spoke to knew about it, he had to explain it to them every time
her got a real person on the phone. Kind of strange.
