[And it's almost complete! - Ed]
Now comes Red Hat's next act. In its next major release, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, due out before the end of the year, the company is introducing a handful of technologies and services aimed at making computing substantially cheaper for corporations. It's attacking the total-cost-of-ownership issues that Microsoft has raised in an effort to hold back the Linux tide. If Red Hat brings down the cost of open-source computing by another big step, it, and Linux, could prove mighty hard to stop.

I know we are all going to miss Don Marti. Many of usLJ folks have known Don"forever", and we have worked with him for five years. Don had the big picture, knew his bits and was a great writer-exactly the right mix.

I long ago lost interest in SCO's claim it "owns" Unix and can force everyone to "license" Linux for its benefit.
At this point I believe SCO is basically a law firm, specifically the law firm of Boies, Schiller and Flexner LLP of New York. Four of its partners signed the latest filing, along with SCO's local Salt Lake City counsel, Brent Hatch and Mark James of James, Hatch & Dodge.
To me the most interesting aspect of the latest filing, the cover letter of which was sent to me by SCO's PR officer, Blake Stowell, is the listing of partners who worked on the sealed enclosure, which claims to detail which specific pieces of Linux IBM allegedly "stole" from SCO's Unix. There are two partners who work in Armonk, which is IBM's headquarters, one from Ft. Lauderdale and one from Miami. Missing is the "name" partner, David Boies, he of U.S. vs. Microsoft fame. (The BS&F partners are, for the record, Robert Silver, Edward Normand, Stuart Singer, and Stephen Zack. Good lawyers no doubt, but none with their name on the door.)
