> 2) Is FreeBSD in any way affected by the SCO lawsuits ...
What you're asking for is legal advice. No one here will indemnify you if
in a perverse travesty of justice SCO does succeed in its goals. You will
have to assume the risk yourself. Risk = probability * severity.
Probability is something most people have an opinion of. On this list, you
are not likely to find many people who think that any ruling regarding
FreeBSD (or Linux, for that matter) will favour SCO. Severity is something
you can only judge yourself.
It would be wrong if SCO were able to successfully make a claim against
FreeBSD, but that doesn't make it impossible.
