Groklaw's Pamela Jones has written
on CIO Today that discusses how the SCO case may have
actually helped the growth of Linux.
"Linux is growing by leaps and bounds. If Microsoft's anti-Linux campaign got one thing right, it's when it said it was like "a cancer" -- only not the way they meant it. It was trying to say something mean, and inaccurate, about the GPL, the license under which Linux is made available. But in reality, Linux really does seem to be growing at an unstoppable pace.
I believe the SCO case, while designed to slow Linux adoption, actually might have encouraged it. I call it the SCO Boomerang.
