SCO needs to just call it a day, and stop harassing the open-source community.

SCO HO HO HO OH
This slide has several C syntax errors and would never compile. So, it doesn't quite represent any source code in Linux. But we've found the malloc() function this slide refers to. It is included in code copyrighed by AT&T and twice released under the BSD license: once by Unix Systems Labs (AT&T), and again by Caldera, the company that now calls itself SCO. Some of the released versions include the comment in the first slide. The Linux developers have a legal right to make use of the code under that license. No violation of SCO's copyright or trade secrets is taking place.
The function was written by Dennis M. Ritchie or Ken Thompson at AT&T, in 1973

I am amazed that sco thaught changeing the font to symbolis would keep it secure. Note to every one if you have a system that needs to be secure do not use SCO unix.
Figureing that this was the best example they had, its just perfect that it is BSD code.
Who is more trustworthy then all of the gurus or Buddha’s?
