"Were you imagining that "Paul Murphy" was going to apologize for his attacks on Groklaw or for being so wrong in his support of SCO? Or that he'd keep his promise to stop blogging if SCO lost? Or that he'd finally admit SCO has no case?

"Au contraire. He continues to insult, and he predicts SCO, or a new owner of Novell, will surely succeed yet in fulfilling SCO's plot, in what he believes, if I've understood him, will be a legal Hail Mary pass to go down in history. The new FUD is his article, Suicide by Victory: More on SCO, in which he predicts gloom and doom for Linux because Novell won at the jury trial in Utah.

"I know. He's so funny. It makes no sense. But I'll answer him seriously anyway. I'm beginning to wonder if he and Marc Rochkind were the guys who cooked up this whole fiasco. Rochkind, you ask? Yes, he tells us what his "testimony" was, even though Rochkind never testified and his expert report for SCO was and is under seal. I don't know how that strikes you, but it strikes me that perchance "Murphy" has more of a direct connection to the SCOfolk than he tells us. If so, this article might represent a trial balloon, in which case it's worth responding to, in the hopes that the world will be spared the long version."
