SCO chief Darl McBride interviewed

| Posted: Jul 3, 2003 6:58 pm


UK technology website VNUNET has spoken exclusively to SCO's chief executive, Darl McBride, about Linux, the future of SCO and of course that court case with IBM.

 

Are you still saying categorically that there is offending code in the Linux kernel?
Yeah. That one is a no-brainer. When you look in the code base and you see line-by-line copy of our Unix System V code - not just the code itself, but comments to the code, titles that were in the comments and humour elements that were in the comments - you see that everything is taken straight across.

 

Everything is exactly the same except they have stripped off the copyright notices and pretended it was just Linux code. There could not be a more straightforward case on the Linux side.

 

And that's actually the Linux kernel, as opposed to other parts? Correct, the kernel.
