given that SCO is most likely just about to go under and *really* have no
more support and development, I'm sure the customer base of SCO users would
be delighted to have some project to help them migrate their software to
it would be a pretty good "legal defense" strategy too. it's no secret SCO
is already running out of money.
so if their customer base disappears, and they get hit with some large legal
bills, they'll just be forced to close doors - even sooner.
then just wait until their property is for sale on the auction block, buy
unix for a song, and put it definitely under open source
