SCO Ignored

SCO Ignored

Evans Data says its survey of Linux developers indicate they are overwhelmingly unconcerned with the SCO case. Evans polled 400 developers focused on Linux and more than 70% of them said that SCO's claims won't impact their companies' decision to use Linux. Twelve percent said SCO's lawsuit would; 17% had no opinion. Wonder if it's true or just IBM propaganda. Meanwhile, Evans found that 36% of developers prefer commercial versions of Linux and 15% non-commercial stuff, but most say it doesn't matter. Presumably that's a problem for the likes of Red Hat and SuSE.
