    InformationWeek ( in
    http://www.informationweek.com/story/
    showArticle.jhtml?articleID=12801004)
    reports:
             SCO Group claims that Unix has been used to accelerate the
    development of Linux
             in two key ways--line-by-line copying of Unix System V source
    code into the Linux
             kernel and copying derivative Unix code that enables
    multiprocessing capabilities.

    I have no multiple processor machines. Why on earth would I be pay a
    penny to license multiprocessing capabilities which I can't use?

    I guess I'll be going back to 2.2 until this nonsense blows
    over....sigh.
