Red Hat and Novell: Need to worry? October 13, 2007Posted by rjdohnert in 1.
Is it time to worry? Is it time to format your machines and install FreeBSD? You should anyhow but no, you shouldnt. This thing is still in preliminary phases. The patent they are attacking with is a very old one and likely will be invalidated with prior art. But in todays legal system you never know. The OSS community will likely demonize the company similar to the way they did SCO and continue to preach rhetoric that has nothing to do with the case at all. Albeit it will be amusing to watch.
