Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Our reporter at the oral argument in SCO's appeal of its loss to Novell before the jury and before the judge in Utah District Court today has now filed his reports. It sounds from the reports like it went quite well for Novell, although we can't be sure until the order issues, which could be months.

"Would it amaze you if I told you that the report shows that SCO raised an entirely new argument today for the first time? That's a no-no. Well, they are The Amazings. Also, SCO's version of what the 10th Circuit ruling was after its first appeal is ... well, read it for yourself, and you will see why the judges kept correcting SCO today. At the end, SCO's lawyer, Stuart Singer of Boies Schiller, and Novell's, Michael A. Jacobs of Morrison & Foerster, shook hands. I am not a betting person, but if I had to, I'd bet that it was Jacobs who offered his hand first. He's always so genial.

"Enjoy. I'll add any further details that arrive. And a huge thank you to Clocks, who had to brave snow for us and whose typing fingers are exhausted. He did a wonderful job of capturing the flavor of the day."
