Can Microsoft get its $12 million back from SCO?

| Microsoft played matchmaker back in 2003 when SCO needed money to help fund
| its lawsuits agains IBM and various other Linux players and customers.
| Microsoft suggested that hedge fund BayStar Capital invest $50 million in
| SCO.
|
| Microsoft also backed SCO play to convince other vendors and customers to
| license SCO technology to avoid potential infringement lawsuits. (Maybe
| that where Microsoft got its patent-licensing ideas ...)
|
| One of the first companies to snap up two SCO licenses was Microsoft, to the
| tune of $12 million, according to BusinessWeek. Sun Microsystems and Computer
| Associates also bought into SCO plan.

| cash inflow is statistical noise by comparison. The brave new
| SCO source business model is now clear: sue your customers, shill
| for Microsoft, kite your stock, and pray you stay out of jail."
