"Not even SCO tried to claim anything like that. Here. Read SCO's complaint for yourself. According to SCO, IBM first got involved in Linux in the year 2000. By then, Linux was in the 2.4.x series. Not that much of what SCO wrote turned out to be true. Just saying not even SCO claimed that IBM or HP was there at the beginning. It's fanciful.

GNU/Linux comes to you from a large group of volunteers who provided the world with a lovely gift. And they made sure no one could abscond with it. That's the part some find so hard to swallow, but if you're a programmer or an end user, no doubt you see the benefit to you. If all you live for is money, you should probably be a hedge fund manager instead."
