SCO's protection racket

The nasty business practice of SCO continues apace as "SCO readies new Linux licensing program".

The SCO Group is preparing a new Linux licensing program that it claims will allow users of the open-source operating system to run Linux without fear of litigation.

In short, it's nothing but a protection racket trying to suck a little money out of Linux users trading on the fear that IBM might lose the lawsuit over Linux. It would be honorable after winning, but right now SCO is just trading on fear. Any gangster would be proud of their ingenuity.
