Speaking Of Jarndyce And Jarndyce
Brad Stone in Wired ("The Linux Killer"): "SCO has either initiated or is defending itself in seven lawsuits before five judges in four states and two countries. ... These lawsuits have generated thousands of pages of legal briefs at costs that exceeded $3.4 million in the first quarter of 2004 for SCO alone. Hopeful Linux advocates predicted that courts would quickly dismiss SCO's claims. But the lawsuits plod along like horror-flick zombies that won't die."
There's a great sidebar piece about what's being done to document contributions to Linux (though it also notes the lack of documentation is probably part of what's made Linux such a success). And Professor Lessig as usual does not disappoint: "We are cowards in the face of Bill Joy's nightmare."
