SCO fires CEO Darl McBride
"As Pamela Jones of Groklaw commented recently about SCO's last amazing dodge from the grave in June: "At the absolute last minute, SCO instead walks in with yet another proposed deal, claims extraordinary circumstances, and wants to go forward with that instead. Everyone in the courtroom but SCO and the judge view it as gaming the system and deliberately sandbagging again.""

Darl McBride Out; SCO Looking to Sell "Non-Core Assets"
"I find it hard, I guess, to understand the reasoning behind firing McBride and then continuing the litigation unless there is some other factor. Litigation is his best skill, in my view. But then, SCO never did take my advice. Think how much trouble they could have saved themselves, and the rest of us, if they only had.

"P.S. SCO's litigation will eventually fail, in my view, because of the GPL. They released their Linux products under the GPL. It's the fundamental flaw that will sink that ship no matter what else they are able to do. I've been saying that since Groklaw began, and it's still my opinion."

SCO fires CEO Darl McBride, architect of litigation strategy
"Even after SCO's deception was exposed and the company effectively lost its case, Darl McBride continued to insist that the company has evidence of System V code in Linux. No such evidence has been presented and McBride's argument directly contradicts testimony given by other SCO executives. McBride's stubborn detachment from reality has made him a subject of ridicule in the Linux community."
