Linus Blasts SCO's Header Claims
Caldera
The Courts
Linux
Posted by timothy on Mon Dec 22, '03 07:19 PM
from the drubbing-and-thrashing dept.
jonbryce writes "Linus has responded to the latest claims made by SCO in their letter to the Fortune 1000 companies. Basically, he wrote the code himself, and it has been there since Linux 0.0.1. No copying from BSD or any other source." You can also read his comment to the Linux kernel mailing list, which reads in part "I think we can totally _demolish_ the SCO claim that these 65 files were somehow 'copied.' They clearly are not."
