Re: [linrad] flavors and colors of Linux. Is RedHat strange or charming?

SCO has a very weak case.  Currently they refuse to say
exactly what was copied.  But as soon as they do point to
it their case will become moot in a matter of hours when the
"copied" code gets re-written.  So they dare not say
what it is.  Yes it's stupid but their plan is not to win
a court case but only to stir up some doubts and
gain attention.
