Killing Linux

The Linux community seems to be taking very lightly the recent events surrounding the SCO-versus-IBM lawsuit and SCO's claim that Linux relies on Unix
in unfair ways. One writer calls the situation a farce, while another thinks it's laughable and stupid. Linus Torvalds has reportedly said it is not
much different than a Jerry Springer Show--mere entertainment. The Linux community seems to have put its collective head in the sand. Nobody seems to
realize that Linux and the entire open-source movement are at grave risk. Apparently the open-source idealists don't understand the quirks of the
legal system.
