Tide turns against SCO

Anonymous Reader writes "SCO shares fell nearly 10% Friday, after an IBM memo rejecting SCO's Linux claims turned up.

Meanwhile, Andy Butler of Gartner said "Users should not start waving their cheque books" in apparent contradiction of earlier comments by his colleague George Weiss. GROKLAW lists several other analysts taking anti-SCO positions on Linux licensing.

Bill Gates crawled out, to talk about Linux IP issues. I wonder if this will help boost SCO executives' faith in their own company: Form-4 filings with the SEC reveal SCO Executives have been cashing out stock. They made $398,833.90 in June, and $781,964.70 in July (so far)!"
