I just finished reading the article and the responses, and I'd suggest
that you go back and read the responses. As I read Murphy's article, I
could tell *something* didn't seem right about what he was saying based on
what else I've been reading on the subject for some time, and when I read
the responses, I was even more convinced of it.
Mr. Murphy may have 20 years in the IT consulting business with extensive
Unix experience per the footer, but IMHO his thoughts on the lawsuit, SCO,
and IBM don't even qualify as HALF-baked.
I won't reiterate what was said in the responses (with a few exceptions,
it was said very well by the posters). I'll just say I agree with the
posters' general conclusions that Mr. Murphy's article was quite poorly
researched and even more poorly thought out.
I think I'll stay with eWeek for my news on this subject. I've found them
to have a good track record of knowing what they're talking about, and
Steven Vaughan-Nichols is THE MAN as far as I'm concerned about the news
on all this.
That's my 2c, FWIW.
I'm Mike--James' Dad, hence "JamesDad". I use this nym in memory of my
son James Webb (1992-2000) who died fighting leukemia. He was a greater
man at 8 than some ever become. May his life, battle and story never be
forgotten! More info at <http://www.themiraclekids.com/mem-james.htm>.
