Industry news: Most of SCO's lawsuit over Linux is thrown out
Fox News reported that US Magistrate Brooke Wells said SCO had "willfully failed to comply" with court orders to show IBM which of millions of lines of code in Linux were supposedly misappropriated. SCO argued that was IBM's job. Wells likened SCO's stance to a security guard's accusing a shopper of stealing merchandise — and demanding the shopper show proof of the theft. This lawsuit looked like a Hail Mary pass from the beginning. Can we all breathe easier now?
