    They're not. As of now, SCO has $68.5 million in cash reserves. Without the Microsoft money, they would have been about $15 million in debt.

    Careful before you go ape over it, where did this memo come from? Who leaked it? Is it credible? I could whip up an "insider memo" in no time and as long as I included what the few Linux Bigots out there wanted to hear they would eat it up. I am not sure that I buy into this yet. Not without more proof.
