There is no smoking gun, but if you look at the history and facts, eWEEK.com Linux & Open Source Center Editor Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols thinks there's no question who's behind SCO's legal actions.
Is Microsoft behind SCO? Well, of course it is. Do you really think Microsoft needed a new SCO Unix license? Please!
But you can forget about Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer meeting by some high-tech Redmond cauldron at midnight to plot about how they'll get Linus Torvalds and his little operating system, too. That's not how I see it happening. Microsoft loves SCO's actions, but it didn't start them.
