We've all been wondering here on Groklaw if financial analysts live in an alternate universe. Or worse. I know many of you have found it discouraging. But here is some evidence that the message is now starting to get through. I have been given permission to show you Dion Cornett's most recent SCO analysis for Decatur Jones. Here you go.

You might be interested also to know about this report in Federal Computer Week yesterday that officials at the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts announced they are switching from Solaris to Linux:

"Linux operating systems continue to gather steam in government information technology circles, with officials at the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts announcing they would support the open standard as the basis for mission-sensitive applications.

"The courts agency awarded PEC Solutions Inc., based in Fairfax, Va., a contract worth up to $9 million to help migrate the administrative office's existing Sun Microsystems Inc.'s Solaris/Intel Corp. server infrastructure to the Linux platform. The agreement is initially for one year with an option for four more years.

"According to officials, the Linux systems will back several critical applications supported at court locations throughout the United States, including court and probation/pretrial services case management, finance and accounting.
