SCO chief executive Darl McBride isn't slinging his mud as enthusiastically as he used to. In an interview with vnunet.com at SCO forum in Las Vegas, he said that he wanted to come to a resolution in the ongoing litigation of his company against IBM and several other companies over SCO's claims of ownership of the Unix operating system.
But McBride might be willing to start talking, he doesn't seem to be bringing much to the bargaining table. At least yet.
McBride seems to have realised that there isn't much of a life beyond the litigation, regardless of who wins.
"If all we are doing is sitting here waiting around for a lottery ticket to come in, then what's the point? Life's too short."
SCO last month unveiled a new version of its OpenServer Unix operating system. Believe it or not, the software has been hailed by many as a great improvement over the previous version. It could even attract new users and let SCO build a viable business selling software instead of buying lottery tickets.
