They are suing IBM because supposedly IBM took source code from UNIX, the grand-daddy of Linux, and put it into linux. However many people doubt this since source code is subject to being very similar for a single problem. Also Novell, the previous owner of UNIX granted IBM a lifetime use liscence that should cover IBM.

SCO will never sue all the Linux users. Don't fear. Many linux experts think SCO has very little chance of getting any money from IBM. Even if they do win Linux will be safe. It will continue to be devoloped and all. Even if IBM looses Novell which maintianed a legal control over some liscenceing of UNIX will garuntee all linux users.

Incase you were wondering I am a linux user/lover.
