Can't Get Enough SCO Spin? Than I have good news for you.
SCO has just put out a press release, at 10:28 PM Monday night, announcing a teleconference Tuesday at 11:30 AM, with Darl, Bench and David Boies. Yup. That would be today. They will be talking about the new legal arrangement with Boies' firm, the money and their plans. If they are planning to sue anybody new, this would seem to be a likely moment to say so or at least hint at it. I have no inside info; just guessing. It all seems to be pulled together in haste at the last minute, compared to earlier such press releases.
Here's some of the press release:
"SCO Invites You to Participate in a Teleconference With: David Boies, Managing Partner, Boies, Schiller & Flexner

Doesn't this seem like kinda short notice? They put out a press release at 10:28 PM on Monday, calling a teleconference for Tuesday at 11:30 AM. You don't suppose they saw people noticed their SEC filing, do you?
