The interesting thing about using information technology--as if you 
have not noticed by now--is that nothing is as it seems. The pace of 
change obviates glib assumptions, and only the wise IT planners actually 

Nothing is what it seems in the long-running SCO furor over Linux 
infringements. While some may regard the SCO affair as a tempest in a 
teapot, license-compliance audits are taking center-stage. Any murky cloud 
surrounding Open Source license compliance could be the litigator's next 
silver lining. Daniel Eggers, founder of Open Source Risk Management 
LLC, is selling defense and legal infrastructure to those who stand 
vulnerable to plaintiffs and their lawyers, beyond SCO. 

Meanwhile, openBench Labs continues its quest for answers to the great 
IT conundrum: If disks are so inexpensive, why is storage so costly? 
The answer calls for finding devices with real SAN smarts. We discover a 
SAN storage array that provides the added-value services once only 
found in file-server appliances. What's more, there's a Fibre-Channel 
driver in 2.6 kernel distributions that makes the Linux and Windows 2003 
Server battle for "King of the SANpit" no contest. Find out more.
