SCO Threatens Energy Department

Continuing its campaign of Fear Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) hoping to cow Linux users in to handing over large sums of money based on its unsubstantiated claims to own code used in the Linux operating system, the SCO Group, is now demanding money from the US Energy Department.

SCO apparently adheres to the motto, "if you can't innovate, litigate." The company has seen the handwriting on the wall and knows its days are numbered, but apparently believes this last desparate ploy may put off its doom a few more years. They apparently hope that they can generate enough revenue from easily cowed companies, those that may have so much spare cash that they won't mind forking over a few thousand or even a few million "just in case", and perhaps even the federal government to keep the company running, since their revenue from their version of the Unix operating system is likely to continue to decline.
