  • If SCO gets resoundingly slapped down by the time OSCON rolls around, it'd seem a bit like beating a dead horse. (Unless you have a Terribly Clever fallback plan, of course :)
    • Not to mention that there really is nothing to be said that hasn't already been said about this whole thing. Most of the open source people in the press sound like a bunch of vapid idiots who won't get any points from the audience they claim this case is alienating. Maybe gather a class action suit at oscon but a panel? It's like preaching to the choir.

    • Actually, I think the case exposes some weaknesses with open source software in the area of patents and PR. Who rebuts SCO claims if SCO goes after Linus instead of IBM? What legal position are the users and creators of open source software in with respect to patent claims?

      Even if this is all magically resolved by OSCON (and don't forget that lawyer time is the opposite of internet time), there's still a lot of post-mortem work to be done.
