[Linux-aus] Anyone else want to make a target of themselves?

SCO ANZ don't seem minded to pick up on this one. I know the email hit 
their servers within seconds. They took www.sco.com out of DNS, but 
sco.com still resolved and wasn't responding. Their MX 
(mail.ut.caldera.com) did respond, a little lagged but working fine.

If they ignore it and hope it goes away, they're in for a rude shock. If 
they pick it up, they throw away their hard-worked-for underdog image 
(can't say "earned", 'twould be a lie).

If a couple of other voices join the chorus, this will somewhat tighten 
the screws on them - the open-source way,k sometimes described as "like 
being nibbled to death by ducks".

The ideal candidate has the following characteristics:

  * either too small a target, or too big (think hp, Dell, BHP)

  * determined to follow through at any cost

  * able to not muff their lines too often in public

  * no major criminal history or other potential "dirt"

  * Linux user
