    actually MS didn't actually buy Unix, they bought a license to the Unix code.
    which to me means MS is scared or linux.

    That's how I read it- or M$ wants to start developing code based around one of the Unix kernels. Scary thought....

    Quite a few people actually...

    Most end users
    OEMs
    And the whole corporate world.

    That's a lot of customers.

    dos is definitely not unix based.

    They are completely different structures.




    windows just wants to know how to make their OSs error free and insanely reliable. I don't blame them, really. They just better not touch anything.

    Really though, imagine if the lawsuit were to go horribly wrong. So SCO wins, they essentially own Linux because it contains Unix code. Microsoft has rights to the Unix code, which Linux contains, giving them rights to Linux. Windows gains all of Linux's powers highlander style, and kills off their only competition, thus starting the apocalypse.

    By spending a little cash and buying the license, they're just hoping for something like this to happen (except for that last part). They'd kick themselves forever if they let something like that slip away.

    as far as I'm aware Linux doesn't actually have any Unix code in it.
    It may be based off the unix model but doesn't actually use any or the code.
    that's why they called it Linux and acronym Linux is not unix.
    also GNU is an acronym GNU's not unix check out places like gnu.org
