SCO Won't Be Letting Go, Oh No No
Last month we brought you the astonishing news that someone actually wanted to by SCO, the now-bankrupt perennial thorn-in-the-side of the Linux community. As of today, the joke is — again — on them, as they've had to hightail it in reverse with their tail between their legs.
The main snag in SCO's plan to sell of it's Unix business was the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, which has to approve of any such sale, and the fact that IBM and Novell were quick to share their views on why the sale was a bad idea. Apparently, SCO realized it wasn't going to happen, because they withdrew their motion to approve the sale today, without comment.
