SCO: IBM, however, was not and is not in a position legally to "open source any part of AIX that the Linux community considers valuable."
Rather, IBM is obligated not to open source AIX because it contains SCO's confidential and proprietary UNIX operating system.
To make this arguement work, SCO must prove that AIX, which
I understand was substantially derived from Mach and the BSDs,
SCO's Unix source code, and that it was not developed by CMU (the
initial Machians) or IBM.
