An Open Source Letter to Whom, SCO?

Many members of the community, from everyday desktop users right on up to Linus Torvalds, jumped on the statements made by McBride earlier this week, and the arguments offered against the Utah company have ranged from logically reasoned to outright incensed. It was, after all, a pretty fair bet that the community would be upset by the comments made in that letter.
