Best practices meets the real world!

eWeek has a article regarding SCO Returns IBM Fire over Unix Rights. SCO's response labeled the counter claim as: "an effort to distract attention from its flawed Linux business model...." and "If IBM were serious about addressing the real problems with Linux, it would offer full customer indemnification and move away from the GPL (GNU General Public License) license."

I find this ironc because it doesn't address two important things: 1) the patent issues, and 2) Novell told SCO not to terminate IBM's license. It also keeps the FUD up, without letting anyone know that both SCO, and Microsoft (Balmer's also quoted) do not indeminify thier products either. Every software manufacturer sells their product with "as-is" and "if it works for you, great" wording in their license agreements. It also leads one to wonder why SCO didn't address them.
