SCO News Roundup

In the absence of any word from Judge Kimball, today’s catch is mostly Linux news again, which is fine, since snide anti-SCO comments are always appropriate in relation to any Linux news item.

Novell and HP apparently don’t see things that way, since you can now buy an Itanium box direct from HP with SuSE 9 preinstalled. Golly. 64-bit Linux. Maybe SCO will sue them over it?
