Despite earlier claims that IP-violating code was not found in the kernel, only the periphery apps and components, SCO is now claiming that they have indeed code in the Linux kernel that violates their agreement with IBM. As usual, they refuse to cite examples.
Chief SCO jackass Darl McBride goes on to say, "We're finding ... cases where there is line-by-line code in the Linux kernel that is matching up to our UnixWare code... We're finding code that looks likes it's been obfuscated to make it look like it wasn't UnixWare code - but it was."
Oh yes, of course it was. Nevermind the fact that both SystemV UNIX (which SCO owns) and Linux are BOTH derivitives of earlier versions of UNIX.
