SCO Offers $1/4M Reward, Alleging Virus To Be Part of the 'Linux War'
"The SCO Group late Tuesday offered a $250,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the writer of a fast-spreading mass-mailing virus that is programmed to launch a massive distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack against the SCO home page. The W32.Novarg.A@mm (MyDoom) virus, which has emerged as an unlikely weapon in the ongoing 'Linux War' between SCO and the open-source community, is set to launch the DDoS attack against SCO on Feb. 1 and has a trigger date to stop spreading on Feb. 12.

Debian is Fastest-Growing Distro"Over the six months from July 2003, Debian has been the fastest growing Linux distribution according to Bath-based Internet researcher Netcraft. Netcraft counted active sites containing the name of a Linux distribution in the Apache server header.
In percentage terms, Debian is closely followed by SuSE, now owned by Novell, and Gentoo. Red Hat has a far greater number of sites but -- quite typically for larger players in the market -- a much slower growth rate. Its share fell this month, following widely publicised and controversial changes to its licensing and security update policies, which saw the company move to a more commercial model to which many in the open source community were unaccustomed. However, with a hit rate of over 1.45 million, more than the rest of the distros combined, Red Hat won't be too upset.
A distribution name was present in a little over a quarter of Linux based Apache sites, according to Netcraft, and the overall growth rate of Linux servers was just under 15 per cent."
