"This is a creative flight into Never Never Land, to a plebian mind like mine. One thing you have to acknowledge, though. SCO is never boring. You ask, but why do this? They must know this can't work out. Well, what if all you want is to fight for more time, hoping for a favorable appeal ruling. Then does it make sense?

"In fact, SCO asks first that the motions to convert or dismiss be denied; next it asks that if the court must do something, that it choose either to dismiss or to appoint an examiner and keep SCO in Chapter 11, and if it does either, it asks the court to stay any order until the court can "have the benefit of" the appeals court ruling, whenever that may be. SCO suggests that it will be by September 15.

"It attaches letters from SCO customers, essentially saying that it would be a hardship for them if SCO goes out of business. One of them is from a gentlemen who is a CACI, Inc. contractor for the US Army, if I've read the letter correctly, but at the bottom it says, "This letter is not meant to be an official CACI or Government endorsement of any product and is to be used to support SCO in submitting a customer summary to the bankruptcy judge only." Another letter is from someone at Business Console Ltd. in Moscow, "SCO's premier partner in Russia" whose major customer is Sberbank, or the Russian Savings Bank, "the largest bank in Russia". There are a number of letters from South America."
