The chanse ain't "near zero" it is zero. Really. First, they'll never come within a million miles of winning.
Second, even if they did, it'd cost a small fraction of the value of Linux to simple buy their so called "valuable IP".
Third, even if they win AND IBM and friends decide to let them liveon independently, there's simply no way anyone would contribute a single line of improvements to a system SCO has any special rigths to.
Thus whatever (my bets are on "nothing") IP SCO has any claims to will sink to irrelevance in months with customers scrambling left and rigth to get out. Not into other SCO-offerings mind you.
