Web Informant #349, 5 November 2003: Novell and Unix
Web Informant #349, 5 November 2003: Novell and Unix: "I find the whole situation very ironic. The main thorn in the side of Linux these days is SCO, which has its roots in the Canopy Group, a private venture capital firm that grew from the house that Ray Noorda built. If you recall, Noorda was the long-time CEO and chairman of Novell in the 1980s and early 1990s. Noorda was behind the first effort to buy USL from AT&T back in 1993. SCO's lawsuits on intellectual property theft stem back to the early years when Novell owned USL and are based on documents from the Noorda archives."
