Good for IBM. It's a pretty laughable situation and SCO aren't doing themselves any favours.

Out of interest, how does SCO propose to extract $1300+ from every Linux user? How did they even derive that figure in the first place?

Well, if SCO does win (which I don't see how they will), it would be the end of Linux as we know it. But I gotta agree, $1300 from end users is crazy... What are they thinking?

looks that way !!



I loved Battlestar Galactica and thought it had a vastly superior storyline.

With todays technologies it could be made so much better .. Alas. ... Would it be the same without the original crew?

Some VERY big names starred in Galactica...

Don't forget the HOWLING, PROWLING, WOLFMAN JACK



guesting in Galactica discovers Earth ... How would they replace him ... or .. Commander Adama ..



Cant remember his real name !!

But if they do make a revamped version .. I for one.. Will be going to the flix to see it !!

@Rudei

Actaully, there's going to be a TV mini-series on the SciFi cable network in december. There was a preview of the series here in the states last night, but I didn't see it. In part because I've not been particularly fond of SciFi's "Original Mini-Series" (i.e. Dune, Taken, etc.).

@The_Editor

From the cryptic trailers, it appears that Commander Adama will be played by Edward James Almos. Other than him, I don't know anything else about the cast... Although, if you can find the current edition of Sci Fi Magazine, there's supposed to be an "on set visit" interview/article.
