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...

Groklaw's founder: "Nothing will ever erase SCO's behavior from the community's memory"

"[N]othing will ever erase SCO's behavior from the community's memory. If they had behaved honorably, or even normally, and showed the code they believe is infringing, the community would have stood on its head to be helpful. No one wishes to violate anyone's rights. That's been true from day one.

The problem is, SCO seems to want its code to be in Linux and to force Linux to keep it there, so SCO can be like a troll under the bridge, making you pay every time you cross the bridge. They want to be paid for every Linux sale, from what I understand, and so make money from code they claim they own inside it. They don't want to let anyone remove it, because then there is no money for them from each sale of Linux. That is the impasse, as I understand it."

Pamela Jones, founder of Groklaw

"[SCO's] dreams of untold wealth from Linux appear impossible"

"It reminds me of just before the Revolutionary War, when the English forced the colonists to house and feed British troops in their homes. What a brainstorm that was. Not. The English thought it would be to their advantage to compel the colonists to toe the line. It backfired, because nobody likes a forced house guest who stays forever at your expense and whom you hate to begin with. SCO wants to force Linux to accept its code permanently moving in and remaining a house guest forever. They will find that it's just not acceptable and that the Linux community is resourceful and will not accept any such arrangement, so their dreams of untold wealth from Linux appear impossible of fulfillment."

OpenOffice manager: "Israel is interesting because it has taken a stand on behalf of open source"

 "Israel is interesting because it has taken a stand on behalf of open source and open standards and said that this is the way that they want to go and has been able to satisfy their needs."

Investor's Business Daily: "Linux...the renegade big backing from IBM and HP in 2003"

"Makers of information technology saw their wares becomes more like commodities in 2003, as business buyers scooped up cheap Intel-type machines and embraced the Linux operating system. "Despite threatened lawsuits and license fees from SCO Group Inc., (SCOX) which calls Linux an illegal copy of its Unix software, the renegade software got big backing from IBM Corp.,  Hewlett-Packard Co. and others."

Patrick Seitz in Investor's Business Daily, January 5, 2004
