SCO Targets Torvalds, Stallman

The legal battle between SCO Group and IBM is taking another ugly lurch forward.

On Nov. 11, the same day that Forbes reported that IBM had sent subpoenas to investors and analysts who supported SCO
--and a day in which SCO shares suffered a 10% drop--SCO fired back, telling the court it would issue subpoenas to
Linus Torvalds, creator of the Linux free operating system kernel, and Richard Stallman, president of the Free Software Foundation.

SCO won't say what it hopes to accomplish with the subpoenas. A SCO spokesman says he doesn't even know which subpoenas, if any, have been served.
Torvalds says he got his Wednesday evening. Stallman says he hasn't received one yet.
