Re: [vox] [fwd] UUG SCO Protest

Protests are by their design....generally futile.  A better bet would be 
to buy a handful of publicly traded shares (sold short probably) and then 
show up at the next shareholder meeting with a series of fairly probing 
questions that puts a bit more pressure than a bunch of techno-hippies (as 
they will be perceived) bitching about the *bad SCO people*...

Otherways would be to find out if your workplace has any Unixware licenes 
and see to it that they dont get renewed.
