Ahem... someone forgte their anti-conmspirary theory meds...

Its not likely since almost every line of code in Linux is attributable
to an author/organization and the source trees change over time... so
imagine the complexity of the undertaking...  if SCO has that sort of
engineering capability, they should have a MUCH BETTER an OS... 

More likely explanation is that the Lawyers and Directors want to stall
the court proceedings till and of US financial year (Feb or April -
someone correct me if I am wrong... ) and then sell thier shares while
they are still high on the pre-discovery/pre-trial phase hype... 

But you might be onto something there John, seeing as you DO work for
the largest monopolist in this country...
