That's an example of a reason I quit reading ZD a long long time ago. It's not because I do not agree with what they are saying. It is because they are utterly clueless about what they write. A couple of major blunders are they have no concept of what the GPL provides and protects against and two they make it sound like SCO has any bearing on Linux at all which they don't. I can't believe I actually read it. :)

if microsoft did buy red hat at least void main would have to have a microsoft forum on here again! :-)

well, maybe not, since they'd only be buying it to shut it down...
