Those corporations have the money to defend the customers in the event
of a SCO type lawsuit. Remember SCO sued Delmar-Chrysler and Autozone
for migrating to Linux from Sco OpenServer. The autozone deal was a
Redhat customer. I assure you any code they write for the Linux kernel
fails under our proposed standard for clean-room reverse enginering if
they did get any ideas from Unix.
