This might be the worst case of bad judgment I've seen since that label that turned down the Beatles.
You think this will kill Linux?! Nowhere near it. Even if it turns out there is SCO code in the kernel, people will work at getting it the hell out of there. There is sufficient scaffolding and infrastructure to do this.
How could you possibly tear down a social contract like the GPL? Has it ever occurred to you that all the people who respect it CHOSE to do so? It represents a solid and transparent objective, and people have been rallying to this banner long enough to take this blow, and take it with a grin.
Penguins go through annual fasting periods. Breeding male emperor penguins may fast 90 to 120 days during courtship, breeding, and the entire incubation period (Davis and Darby, 1990).
