SCO, Linux and Rob Enderle: A Conclusion
September 24, 2007 1 Comment
Rob Enderle has posted a final analysis of his involvement in the SCO fiasco. Unlike Dan Lyons, he’s not apologizing. Let me first say that I think anyone sending death threats is absolutely deplorable. He never goes into details about specifics, but if it did indeed happen (and I have no reason to think he’s lying) then I can see why he was upset. However, using the asinine behavior of a single person to paint the Open Source community as “criminals” and then assuming that since they are criminals that SCOX must have a case is not only disingenuous, but seems a bit unprofessional for an analyst. I’m sure Rob is not a bad guy. What he writes in the linked article seems very genuine and I do thank him for that. Hopefully any analysis he does on Open Source or Linux moving forward can be based on facts and data. Hopefully then we can all get along.
