Gun. Bullet. Foot. We all know how IBM handles license and patent
issues, and I can't imagine SCO has never done anything which infringes
one of Big Blue's patents and/or copyrights, of which there are plenty.

I've done my first wobbly steps into computing on a SCO R3 box, and it's
sad to see them go. Nevertheless, with this attitude, good riddance.
