Forever to Last a Bit Longer

Shacknews got word that Duke Nukem Forever will not come out in 2003. In further news, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.

SCO Running Backwards

After yesterday's spate of SCO legal news, here's today's dose: That legal threat against Torvalds was "overstated". Sure, Darl, keep running backwards. That legal drag racer about to run your butt over might not catch you.

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Released

Activision, id, and Splash Damage have released Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. ET is a free, downloadable multiplayer game in the Wolfenstein universe. You don't need the original RtCW to play. It is a 258M download, available for both Windows and Linux. You can download it from 3D Gamers, as well as all the usual suspects. Besides being on all the gaming sites, this also got posted on Slashdot so all the mirrors are getting hammered.

Novell: We Own System V

Novell has issued a press release claiming that they own the patents and copyrights to UNIX System V, not SCO. Bruce Perens weighs in on this on Slashdot. Hopefully this will at least make SCO's suit against IBM more difficult. At the very least, it's nice to see Linux's friends speaking up.

UPDATE! SCO has issued this press release which seems indicate that they are back-pedalling. If this release is correct, I cannot see how they could justify sending threatening letters to corporations that use Linux. They can sue IBM for breach of contract, but they can do next to nothing about anything else. Anybody else smell a lawsuit?

UPDATE #2! Apparently SCO CEO Darl McBride has threatened to sue Linus Torvalds unless more companies license their stuff. That comment is at the end of that story. Maybe he should just sue his parents for naming him "Darl." $10 says that's the root of all of this :)

UPDATE #3! SCO's stock dropped almost 25% today. Anybody surprised?
