IBM Strikes Again

IBM continues to close the net around SCO. Groklaw is reporting that IBM asked for another summary judgment against SCO. This one is a doozy. They are saying that SCO continued to distribute IBM code which was contributed to Linux even though SCO "has renounced, disclaimed and breached the GPL." This will be a great opportunity to give the GPL a legal test it has badly needed. Oh yeah, it hoists SCO on its own petard too. Pardon me whilst I stifle a giggle.

+3 Time Waster of Coolness

You geeks out there probably already know that this year marks the 30th anniversary of Dungeons & Dragons. This week Gamespy is running a neat retrospective with articles about the game's history, (A)D&D computer and video games, and interviews with some of the movers and shakers of the '80s gaming scene. Lots of interesting stuff. I was into that scene back in those days and these articles are bringing back lots of fun memories.

IBM Moves for Partial Summary Judgment

IBM has officially thrown down the gauntlet against SCO. Groklaw got word of their motion for partial summary judgment. Their basic argument is that they didn't do what SCO is claiming, but even if they did, they had the contractual right to do so. I will be very interested to see how both the judge and SCO respond to this.

UT2K4: Editor's Edition Preview

IGN slapped together a quick preview of Unreal Tournament 2004: Editor's Edition which will go on sale this fall. Most interesting is the news of the new vehicles that will be added to Onslaught maps. I'm especially interested in the two-man fighter. Current owners of UT2K4 will be able to download all the new content for free. Thanks Beyond Unreal.
