depechemodem Re:The Real Outcome of This Fiasco (687 comments)

I too read Dvorak idiodic commentary. The real outcome is irrelevant - the Open Source community is an international collection of developers who mostly don't give a rip about US legality. If SCO wins in the US, the development and housing will just move off-shore. The code will get fixed in time and all of the world will use it freely again.

This is the same reason that world-wide P2P networks will never get completely get shutdown.

Score one for the world!

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
