+ SUN - 1 Stooge?
Hey Moe, there's a hole in our boat and were taking on water!</Ballmer>
Knucklehead, put a hole over there so the water can drain out...</McNealy>
So just after
a few months of SUN Microsystem's Scott McNealy publicly accepting Linux
and dressed up in a penguin outfit on a stage... they accept a two
billion dollar payoff from Microsoft to help halt Linux, or to
"return to core technologies," as they put it. This can't be
good for SUN's future. I suppose one could understand this pulling of the
last straws strategy, SCO's stock looks like a daredevil's ski slope,
and Sun's stock hasn't gone over $5.75 a share for more than a year... to
top it all off, Microsoft does NOT like Linux development.
patsy SCO calls Linux "anti-capitalism", and then later called
Linux a knockoff of UNIX. In laymen's terms, the directions are as
follows: Load gun, point barrel at foot, pull trigger, and repeat as
necessary to get rid of customers. SCO has apparently forgotten the fact
that there exists many users of Caldera Linux which SCO has developed and
released under the GPL... their defense remains that they didn't know that
they released code which they owned the Intellectual Property rights to.
Once more, Daryl admits that their capital funded fight will more than
likely run out before a final decision is made in court... which means
investors are a55 out, and their lawyers will remain in a safe and
profitable harbor when SCO goes bankrupt and gets de-listed from NASDAQ.
Please, don't take my word for it, I STRONGLY invite you to do your own
I think Larry
is plotting a sell short in Wall Street.
