SCO fires CEO McBride, still loves litigation
Ah, SCO vs the world. It seems like it has been going on forever, but occasionally a bit of good news crops up. Everyone's favourite Unix company has decided to "terminate" Darl McBride, its outspoken CEO and key figure in the ligitation dramas. While this move will allow the company to "preserve cash and the value of the business", SCO still expects to "raise additional funding and sell non-core assets to bolster working capital". In other words, it needs to flog off some of its products (UnixWare?) to make sure the piggy bank still rattles when shaken.
But if you thought the courtroom antics were now over, think again: with McBride's pay packet now open for legal team pickings, SCO will continue to "pursue litigation against, among others, IBM and Novell". Joy. Many pundits thought that IBM would have left SCO as a smouldering crater by now, or that SCO would have given up the fight and settled down as a small Unix house, but no - it looks like the suing is going to continue until the bitter end.
