The SCO Group, the company that's hoping to profit from its assertion that Linux violates its Unix intellectual property, has threatened legal
action against two federal supercomputer users, letters released Thursday show.
SCO sent letters raising the prospect of legal action for using Linux to two Department of Energy facilities, the Lawrence Livermore National
Laboratory and the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC).

Its great to see a down and out business trying to make money by FUD

Even the corporate giant Microsoft tries to stay on the good side of the federal government, so I don't see why SCO thinks they will be able to get
away with threatening LLNL over their use of Linux. Next they will be going after the owners of the Earth Simulator in Japan over its supposed use of
their coveted source code. Maybe they will try to take a shot at the IRS next and get audited with a fine tooth comb!
