Even his supposed friends think MacBride's gone too far

Lot's of folks think SCO's Darl MacBride has gotten just a bit too obnoxious in his war against Linux. We've agreed with that sentiment but up til now there wasn't much anyone could do about it. Now the New York Times reports that VC firm Baystar Capital is demanding its $50 million ($20 mil from Baystar, $30 mil from the Royal Bank of Canada) investment be returned precisely because "The public statements from Darl McBride, SCO's chief executive, were too frequent and too grand for BayStar's liking."

Bravo Baystar. You woke up to this nasty situation late, but better late than never. Maybe now the Canopus Group, major backers of SCO, will pull the plug on this whole embarrassing mess.
