 Linus Analyzes SCO Files

Groklaw reports on what Linus thinks of the files SCO listed recently.

"I have this distinct memory of figuring out only later that I _should_ have made the numbers be the same, so that I could have been binary compatible. After all, I do actually have the book "Intel386 Family Binary Compatibility Specification 2" (copyright Intel corporation, btw, not SCO), and it lists the error numbers right there. They are different from what Linux uses on x86.
Other architectures fixed that mistake, but the point is that the history of "errno.h" is definitely _not_ from UNIX sources."
