Actually it is a very good thing. I mean the fact that IBM is using the GPL as a way to bitch
slap SCO is showing that they stand behind, support, and validate the GPL because they
are a huge company. I just got done reading "Rebel Code: Open Source and Linux History"
and IBM is a hard company to get to do anything. In the book they compare IBM to an
Elephant, hard to get moving. But once it is in the right direction its hard to stop. So I think
this is suck a huge thing that IBM is standing by the GPL. I think this will be the first case
that the GPL will be validated with. Which is a very good thing.
