As the deadline for the SCO vs IBM resolution passed at midnight last night, many are watching to see what their next moves are. There is speculation that SCO could try to request a preliminary injuction against IBM, which would force IBM to immediately stop selling it’s AIX software. SCO claims that information it shared with IBM for use in its AIX product line has shown up in the open-source Linux OS Kernel.
Meanwhile, as investors around the world watch the unfolding events, SCO’s stock value jumped 24% on Friday, gaining $2.16 to close at $11.21. SCO has asserted that it will not back down from its claims against Big Blue, and initial looks at SCO’s evidence seem to indicate that they have a case.
