"The cat is finally out of the bag: Microsoft Corp. acted as the matchmaker for the $50 million investment led by BayStar Capital into The SCO Group last October.


Microsoft has denied for months that it had any role in that investment, but a BayStar official on Thursday confirmed to eWEEK that Microsoft had indeed acted as matchmaker for the deal."

Hey, FUD has always worked well for the main stream.

I'm just waiting to see what happens with Novell's Non-Compete clause that they agreed to when they sold off whatever code and rights to SCO. Last I heard, it voids out all of Novell's rights retained and seeds them to SCO if Novell ever enters the same market place as SCO. Very odd rider for a contract, I would think.
