I develop special purpose software on both UNIX and Linux and have been tracking this case and the related disputes between the litigious SCO and numerous other companies.
It has been a long process reaching this point in the case, and yet there will likely be many twists and turns yet to follow.

The SCO legal cases serve as examples of how NOT to do business.
I agree with "betajet" regarding the award-winning journalist Pamela Jones' website "groklaw.net" as the best complete source of information regarding the SCO vs. the World saga. The site is unabashedly pro-Linux, but for the 7 years of SCO litigation has maintained a remarkably high level of factual integrity and completeness.
