SCO demands mysterious Linux 2.7 info

Posted on Monday, November 07, 2005 @ 11:54:21 EST by meshal
The supremely funny SCO Group has now topped even itself. They have asked IBM to turn over "all documents concerning IBM's contributions to the Linux 2.7 kernel," including "development work."

There is no Linux 2.7 kernel.

Please, please, please, let SCO ask the court to sanction IBM for refusing to hand over the 2.7 materials. Pretty please?

Linux 2.7 not only doesn't exist, there are no current plans to have one. Happily for Linux, the Dark Side is dumb as a rock when it comes to tech, and they never accept any hints, and so now they have put their feet firmly in quicksand in this SCO's Objection to the Magistrate Court's Order of October 12, 2005 [PDF] and the Memorandum in Support [PDF]. We can thank Groklaw's Laomedon for doing the text for us.
