SGI's Letter to the Linux Community
Silicon Graphics
Posted by michael on Thu Oct 02, '03 10:30 AM
from the hard-news dept.
_Upsilon_ writes "SGI has released a letter to the Linux community in response to SCO's recent threat to revoke the UNIX licence for Irix. The letter mentions that they inadvertently did submit some System V code into the Linux kernel, that has since been removed (and some more in the process of being removed). The article points out that the code fragments in question had already been released into the public domain as well."
