Meanwhile PJ has announced that Groklaw is officially following the case and she has a few questions she’d like to ask NetApp.
So it would appear that NetApp is now the next SCO in the eyes of many, whether is wants to be or not. Is there anything the company could do to avoid such a fate?
With Sun Solaris on the hot seat, this is somewhat intriguing. It’s almost like a reversal of roles. Recall our suspicion that Microsoft approached Sun to ask for lawsuits against Linux.
Speaking of Linux lawsuits and patents, the following quick report about Concurrent Computer reveals some interesting details.
The results for the first quarter of 2008 got a $1.9 million boost from a settlement with Vicor and $1.4 million boost from a patent settlement with C-COR.
Concurrent Computer is in the Linux business, so the involvement of a patent settlement is mind-boggling. Whose attention has this received (if anyone’s)?
