In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

"For another $50 per worker, [Sun] will throw in a knockoff of Microsoft's Office productivity suite for every PC the company owns, plus a glossy version of the free Linux operating system that to the casual eye looks and feels remarkably like Windows. It's the first salvo of a shoot-the-moon strategy to dramatically drive down the cost of corporate computer systems, much as Dell used low-ball pricing to win market share in the PC hardware business."

"On Friday, September 26, IBM filed an amendment to its legal complaint against The SCO Group. In this amended complaint IBM asserts that SCO has violated the GNU General Public License (GPL), and based on this violation has then violated certain IBM copyrights. IBM, not SCO, has brought the GPL into the legal controversy between the two companies. SCO believes that the GPL - created by the Free Software Foundation to supplant current U.S. copyright laws - is a shaky foundation on which to build a legal case. By contrast, SCO continues to base its legal claims on well-settled United States contract laws and United States copyright laws.

The GPL has never faced a full legal test, and SCO believes that it will not stand up in court. We are confident that SCO will win the legal battle that IBM has now started over the GPL. By so strongly defending the controversial GPL, IBM is also defending a questionable licensing scheme through which it can avoid providing software indemnification for its customers. We continue to urge IBM to provide legal indemnification for its Linux customers."

SCO Group, Inc., Press Statement, September 29, 2003


"Red Hat's [announcement last week of its Open Source Architecture] follows Sun Microsystems Inc.'s Sun Java Enterprise System software stack, announced this month. Red Hat officials said, however, that the Sun solution limits users in their choice of hardware platform. Red Hat is taking the opposite approach to Microsoft Corp. as well, Cormier said, in that rather than stuffing everything in the operating system, Red Hat is taking a layered approach that will let users choose whether to use its open solutions or proprietary software from another vendor.

Peter Galli, in eWeek, September 29, 2003



"Microsoft's vast product set is widely exposed. The net result is that Windows is more likely to be hit by the kinds of problems associated with intellectual property claims than Linux is. But until recently, Microsoft was the only company providing indemnification for its customers.

In my mind, this indemnification, if enforceable, makes Microsoft's platforms more secure against this kind of threat than Linux (as a platform) is -- with one exception. The exception is HP, which recently agreed to indemnify its Linux customers much as Microsoft does for its own customers. Now, if you buy from HP, the whole SCO thing is someone else's problem."
