    "Unfortunately, SCO is not the only company that is attempting to use the
    specter of unsubstantiated intellectual property infringement allegations
    as a weapon against competitors. "Always two there are," it is said. SCO's
    litigation war chest was partially furnished by Microsoft, which provided
    SCO $16 million in UNIX licensing fees and helped SCO secure tens of
    millions more from Baystar Capital. As Microsoft continues to trumpet
    baseless and unsubstantiated patent infringement allegations in its war
    against Linux, the company should take a close look at the fall of SCO and
    ask itself if it wants to follow SCO down the same road to ruin. Once you
    start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Microsoft
    obviously has more resources than SCO and could probably endure a
    protracted legal battle forever, but what would it ultimately accomplish?"
