SCO assets are less than the $26m Novell says it's owed

SCO, which today released financial results for its Q4, said it burned about $10m in cash in fiscal 2006, which ended in October. About $12.3m of that was consumed funding lawsuits against IBM and Novell, which are contesting SCO's claim to intellectual property rights of Linux. That leaves the struggling company with about $12.6 in cash. (Some of the legal fees came out of an escrow account, explaining why legal fees were higher than over all cash burn.)

What's up with the annual Desktop Linux Summit?

Some folks who like to plan ahead are wondering if Linspire is going to host its Desktop Linux Summit this spring in San Diego, as it has for the past four years. It looks like we'll have to wait a bit longer to find out.

What makes a 5GL?

From time to time vendors in the application development space have claimed 5GL (5th generation language) capabilities. If you think about this for a moment you will realise that this can't be true. The idea of GLs is that each is an abstraction of the former, so we had machine code (on which I cut my teeth as a developer); assembler; third generation languages such as COBOL, Java, C++ and so forth; and finally 4GLs (now sometimes referred to as ABLs-advanced business languages-as 4GL seems to be out of fashion).

The NEPSI Challenge: Who Gets the Data?

The National E Prescribing Patient Safety Initiative, press release here is an e-prescribing juggernaut aimed at providing 'free' e-prescribing for all doctors. '...The challenge, according to the eHealth Initiative, is that fewer than 1 in 5 of the nation’s practicing physicians currently process prescriptions electronically. Studies indicate that most physicians have been reluctant to adopt electronic prescribing largely because of the cost of the systems, and a perception that the technology requires too much time to learn and install. NEPSI will help address those barriers by providing physicians simple, safe and secure electronic prescribing at no cost...' This initiative raises a number of questions currently not answered: Who gets the e-prescribing data? Is this really free? What is in it for Allscripts?
