Not just The Register... the rumors are popping up everywhere...
Even Brockmeier is commenting about it:

I really likes the comment (a joke I assume) that SCO should buy
openSUSE. Not that they are floating in bucks.

Hummmm may well be a good job i have started getting back into slackware in
that case

Sheesh. SCO has perhaps enough money left to buy a stamp for a postcard,
but not the 500 Million (or likely more) US$ for the Linux business parts of
Novell.

Ciao, Marcus
