Wakeup call of the decade

EV1, the first company (outside of Microsoft) to admit it licensed SCO's Unix to keep from being sued over running Linux may be suffering fallout and loss of business because of the deal. Robert Marsh, CEO of the Houston internet service/presence provider (ISP/IPP) admits that if he had it all to do over again, he wouldn't. Well, duh!, who shouldn't know that. Blackmail and extortion should have no place in business or technology.

Still, the second thoughts might deter others from making the same mistake. Maybe every cloud does have a silver lining!
