It also provides some insights on why Caldera purchased the UNIX business of SCO and their joint Monterey project with IBM.

You see, the challenge is building business. Litigation, no matter what side you're on, tears down businesses. Only the attorneys win. Companies should focus their energies on building their businesses, not on lawsuits. I don't see any positive outcomes.'"
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that
would also stop you from doing clever things.
