    They may yet be. There are reasons why Intel might
    prefer that IBM do it this way.

    Yousuf, you surprise me. To quote Lyndon Johnson, if you want a
    friend in Washington, get a dog.

    Intel would make "friends" with the Lord of Darkness if they thought
    it was useful to maintaining their preeminence in a line of business
    they deemed to be important.

    In this case, though, I'll guess that the subpoena is about Monterey
    and Itanium, as suggested on slashdot:

    http://yro.slashdot.org/yro/05/02/01/0327239.shtml?tid=123&tid=88&tid=136&tid=118&tid=17

    post by bstadil (Hogwash!).

    Intel will be deposed as to just how badly they called it on Itanium,
    and (more darkly) a serious discrepancy between what they told
    investors and what they told IBM. The AMD fanboys are just going to
    love this.

    I wuz sorta wondering where Yousuf was coming from here too. IBM and AMD
    have been life-long buddies. Intel? Ok in the early 80's IBM floated
    'em. Since?

    This will be an interesting story to watch though.

    Hmm, so now we have IBM, Intel, SCO and Microsoft involved. Any
    chances that this will turn into the "Mother Of All Lawsuits" for the
    decade? :P

    What would that have anything to do with Linux?

    Well, only certain parts of IBM are buddies with AMD, which is the
    chip-making side. The server-making, and until recently, the PC/laptop
    making sides were pure Intel, with a few AMD's tucked away in a corner
    out of sight.

    Perhaps you've forgotten why and how AMD got into the x86 biz?

    You're messing with my head, right?

    http://news.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/chips/0,39020354,2133520,00.htm

    Monterey was an IBM-SCO Unix-ware project for IBM, cancelled by IBM.
    SCO claims IBM wanted the project only as a stalking horse for SCO IP.

    The slashdot post I cited earlier

    http://yro.slashdot.org/yro/05/02/01/0327239.shtml?tid=123&tid=88&tid=136&tid=118&tid=17

    speculates that IBM wants Intel to 'fess up to the fact that it warned
    IBM that Itanium wasn't going to arrive on schedule, and that that's
    why IBM cancelled Monterey, not so that they could dump SCO-Unix in
    favor of Linux.

    It would, if IBM can drag MS fully into this. Although
    Novell is after MS, whether IBM thinks MS is the invisible
    hand behind SCO is just guessing at this point.

    If you look at the IBM-SCO Timeline/document-log at:
    <http://www.groklaw.net/staticpages/index.php?page=20031016162215566>
    you'll see that the word "microsoft" appears nowhere ...

    .... yet.

    Not at all, until this message, you hadn't yet connected all of the

    Ah, now I see what you're talking about. Now the dots are connected.

    Actually, I hadn't even thought about Monterrey in a long time. This is
    the first time I'm seeing Monterrey mentioned in conjunction with
    Linux.

    I could be wrong, but I believe SCO claimed IP was transferred from
    Monterey to Linux way back when they filed their lawsuit against IBM.
    They certainly brought it up early in the process, and have been
    claiming it ever since.
