Caldera v. Microsoft: Take the money and run
That's right, the Caldera vs. Microsoft suit is over. Per this article at ABC News.com
, the parties settled today for an undisclosed sum. The article estimates, however, that Caldera got around $155 million for its trouble. Chump change for MS, of course, but not a bad little haul for Caldera. Of course, they were claiming damages of $1.6 billion, but hey, give a little, take a little.
My favorite part of the article is the requisite Microsoft sound bite. This time it comes from a Microsoft attorney who says "Rather than litigating, we prefer to focus on building great software for our customers in this dynamic and competitive industry." Golly-gee, Beav, that's just swell. You knew they were gonna work in that C word any way they could.
