 SCO Most Hated Company?

BusinessWeek.com has a story on how the CEO of SCO Group shook up the computer world by filing a $3 billion suit against tech giant IBM (IBM ), claiming Big Blue had illegally inserted more than 800,000 lines of SCO-owned software code into Linux. According to the article, SCO is now the most hated company in the tech world, surpassing, at least temporarily, Microsoft Corp.
