Thing is apart from a fairly broad customer base of old x86 servers, SCO is worth nothing but it's software licences. Since in most aspects Linux already exceeds SCO Unix (despite SCO's protestations, just look at how much tuning you have to do to make a moderate sided server install run under SCO, when with Linux it is install and go, the defaults just work). IBM has little interest in SCO's assets (I guess they may have some good staff left). If IBM had had any interest in SCO's assets they would have just bought them out, rather than waste money on a pointless law suite. Still I guess there must be the odd nugget of useful source code. My guess is after the victory IBM wil just turn the assets into the open source arena, and let the community pick through the bones for anything useful. It would be a fitting end.
