SCO files for Chapter 11

After losing its long-running battle for ownership of Unix copyrights last month, SCO has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Though SCO say their business isn't affected, their long standing argument over ownership of UNIX code and whether various Linux compenents have UNIX code in them, has made them unpopular very unpopular.

Many people wont be sad if they go under, though it will be a shame as they were pioneers when UNIX was originally being developed.
