The argument is given that this is all about helping out the SCO users.
A counter argument is that by doing so you are attacking Linux and
open-source users by giving credibility to SCO, as well as defending
SCO's user base. However, there are a lot more Linux and open-source
users than SCO users - thankfully. Also, considering Linux is freely
available, how difficult is it really for SCO users to get MySQL
running? Can't figure out how to compile MySQL on SCO ... fine ...
download and install Linux, and get a Linux binary.
I suspect the deal has more to do with MySQL and SCO than with lowly users.
