SCO Hubris

One thing that really chaps me about the entire SCO mess? SCO can’t claim any real ownership of Unix, because they didn’t write the code. If I buy a Renoir in a garage sale, I have a valuable property. But I can’t claim to have drawn it, just because I own it. SCO seems to believe they “own” Unix and therefore Linux. I dream of the day AT&T’s Bell Labs clerks find a document from the original sale granting Unix free to the world or some such. That will be funny.
