Admit it: you've been wondering what happened to Darl McBride. Well, he's back; the SCO group has sent out an extended Darlgram
(an "open letter") as a press release. "Conversely, when Linux customers run into problems and need
professional technical support they really have only two choices.
First, they can turn to the Linux distributor who played a big role in
packaging the product but had nothing to do with its core development.
Or second, they can turn to the Linux volunteer community. These
volunteers were not paid to develop the product; and they received
nothing from the Linux distributor, there's no obligation for that
volunteer to support the product. Would you really want to trust the
backbone of your business to the likely unpredictable response times
of this Linux 'volunteer fire department' support model?
" Somebody evidently forgot to tell Darl that the "no support" FUD line died out in the late 1990's.
