Well, the circus and legal theatre that SCO has created for itself is not quite over yet. Novell appears to be doing something along the lines of what I suggested.
I wrote this:
And today, I read on an article linked from /. that
… or they may run out of Novell’s money, fighting Novell who wants to take possession of Novell’s money.
I won’t speculate whether or not this motion would be granted. I would speculate that at minimum, Novell and other lawsuit parties would want to be on the creditors committee (after SCO attempted to stuff its own friends on there). If Novell get this, I expect them to try to force a chapter 7 involuntary liquidation with them in a preferred position.
Either way, you have a very short life expectancy if your name is SCO. This shot is a setup for the kill. If they don’t succeed at getting it, they are also positioning themselves well for future shots.
Today is October 6th, I will be surprised if SCO exists as a viable corporate entity past 31-December-2007.
