a public relations opportunity for BSD

To many people (Including Brian Kernighan), the SCO vs IBM case
brought old memories from the BSD vs UNIX case. In the later
case linux emerged so I tend to agree there is nothing to be
happy about but I it is true that there is a good good PR
opportunity there.

Some miscellaneous thoughts I had... What will be the upgrade
path for SCO's Linux users? What will IBM use to complete AIX
now that their UNIX license will be revoked? For now I think
both companies will run far away from free software, but FreeBSD
is a viable option on both cases and if we had more people
pointing our fundamental advantages we could see BSD growing
even more.
