Parent article: Why SCO won't show the code
LWN: Are you aware that this revelation has really made it hard to get through to you?
Second shoe: When I was in NORML, I saw news "reports", on major television outlets, of sperm swimming in circles due to marijuana use. The scene they showed was actually a snippet from an old educational film about what sperm looked like under a microscope, while the announcer boldly announced these "important findings" by "research groups." Could this "code" actually be just something they threw up on a slide to mislead people that they were showing evidence?
The third shoe:
On this forum and otheres, I've occasionally seen quiet, second-hand and third-hand posts (a friend, a friend of a friend who worked at SCO) about SCO employees doing the *exact opposite* of what they claimed IBM did, but with no specification of where or when; in other words, these people claimed that they knew SCO employees who stole code, and were encouraged to do so.
I am waiting. If this is true, it's got to be heavy on *someone*'s conscience.
