DaimlerChrysler tells SCO to get out of its face

DaimlerChrysler has responded robustly to SCO's Linux lawsuit. SCO
claimed Daimler had refused to provide it with a "certificate of
compliance" over its long-term Unix contract. Daimler response? Tough.

The car manufacturer asked a Michigan court to dismiss the lawsuit
because there was "no genuine issue of material fact" in it. Daimler
says it has no obligation to provide SCO with any such certification,
but that it had nevertheless sent it a letter about the situation.

"DaimlerChrysler has provided SCO with the only certification required
under the licence demonstrating that DaimlerChrysler is not even using
and has not used the licensed software for more than seven years," the
response stated.
