Those of you who are not geeks: I know you won't understand the rest of this post, but just trust me that this is incredibly good.

For those of you who ARE geeks, please join me in a moment of screaming laughter and cheering, as SCO finally LOSES!!!!!!!!!!

Court Rules: Novell owns the UNIX and UnixWare copyrights! Novell has right to waive!

Hot off the presses: Judge Dale Kimball has issued a 102-page ruling [PDF] on the numerous summary judgment motions in SCO v. Novell. Here is what matters most:
[T]he court concludes that Novell is the owner of the UNIX and UnixWare Copyrights.
That's Aaaaall, Folks! The court also ruled that "SCO is obligated to recognize Novell's waiver of SCO's claims against IBM and Sequent". That's the ball game. There are a couple of loose ends, but the big picture is, SCO lost. Oh, and it owes Novell a lot of money from the Microsoft and Sun licenses.

Good-bye, SCO!
