To those of you that don't read Slashdot:

"For all of you who might be worried about what financial consequences Linus Torvalds might have to endure as a result of being subpoenaed by SCO, fear not: the Open Source Development Lab (OSDL) will pay for its law firm to represent him. The OSDL, who are Torvalds' employer, will announce on Friday that the "OSDL has agreed to fund legal representation for Torvalds and any other employees of the lab who may become involved in the litigation." Just in case you didn't you didn't know, the OSDL is funded by a
variety of corporations including (but not limitied to) IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Sun Microsystems, Red Hat, Cisco, Computer Associates, Fujitsu, Hitachi, and Nokia."

You don't know who Hewlett Packard is? Or Nokia?

Ok, I know what you meant, I'm just picking on you. Here's a link to the full story so that you can know who these people are and why this lawsuit will affect you:

There are quite a few links in that story that are all about the same issue. It all started in March when SCO decided to sue IBM. And then it just goes from there. Read up on it hon, you might find it interesting.
