The LinuxOne thing persisted into at least February - they had a booth at LinuxWorld NY. They wandered over to the SUSE booth at one point and put SUSE on notice that it was an acquisition target once the IPO went through. I also had a conversation with an underwriter during that time about the company's prospects. All told, the LinuxOne story took a good six months to run its full course.
Much like SCO, LinuxOne's nature was almost immediately obvious to the sort of people who read LWN. People who did not understand Linux were much slower to figure the whole thing out.
