HP goes to bat for Linux customers

— 4:39 AM on September 24, 2003

According to this article over at C|Net, HP has decided to go to bat for its Linux customers should SCO come calling for licensing fees.

"We really thought about it and we decided we were just going to move forward and assume all risk ourselves," the representative said. "This is what we want to do to protect our customers."
HP will assume liability for its customers' use of Linux, but unlike IBM and Red Hat, HP won't be taking direct legal action against SCO.
