Maybe in the future we will learn what Thomas Riebl is able to do when he doesn't try to betray people.
Today is the second day after the call, and the second day with less than 3 virus mails. Impressing. I am asking myself what more all-inkl has started to filter, or what else happened... They haven't said a single word...
Oh happy day!
Uncool guy, and a clear boo from here.
The Linux developers have a legal right to make use of the code under that license. No violation of SCO's copyright or trade secrets is taking place.
In this case, there was an error in the Linux developer's process (at SGI), and we lucked out that it wasn't worse. It turns out that we have a legal right to use the code in question, but it doesn't belong in Linux and has been removed.
Really, I have no idea how he can devaluate code for some questionable reasons, giving SCO a wonderful chance to misquote him.
Bruce is not exactly a programmer genius, and for whatever reason he thinks other people's code has been erroneously integrated into the Linux kernel, it is in no way a technical or juridical reason. It can only be the odor of moral malfunction...
It is the perfect comment; it will later on be used at the courts, as it is a declaration of moral failure of the Linux community.
Thank you Bruce. Next time think before you talk.
After all, I've got too much karma anyway...
Or, do you really believe you will be reborn in a higher existence if you're hoarding your Slashdot karma?
I can tell you: NO, in the best case you will be reborn as Cowboy Neal, which is actually not the best case.
Every program is a part of some other program, and rarely fits.
