The Caldera v. Microsoft Docket - All the Documents To Be Found

Filed under
Legal

Here are all the documents still electronically available from the court in the Caldera v. Microsoft litigation, which settled in 2000. Very little is available any more, mainly orders, but you can learn quite a bit from reading orders. And the docket sheet itself tells quite a tale. What I could get, I've placed as links in the list.

We also have some extra filings from the case, thanks to Novell and Microsoft attaching them as exhibits to documents they filed in the Novell v. Microsoft antitrust case, currently in discovery in US District Court in Maryland. We'll make a Timeline page for it, and as new documents get filed as exhibits, hopefully we'll be able to flesh it out some more.

I notice from the notations in the PACER list that this must have been a real knock-down, drag-out discovery battle between Caldera and Microsoft, with Novell pulled into the ring too by Microsoft, which sent them four subpoenas. The last one Novell managed to get quashed. I don't believe that is the same as the subpoena that Novell filed as an exhibit [PDF] in the antitrust case, because that exhibit was offered by Novell as evidence of what Microsoft already should have in its files, since it got that discovery in the Caldera v. Microsoft litigation.

Poor Novell. It keeps having to endure the expense of doing this same discovery over and over.

Ubuntu Core has the keys to IoT security

In October, a DDoS attack on Dyn's infrastructure took down a big chunk of the internet, making sites like Amazon and Twitter inaccessible. It was the first major attack involving IoT (internet of things) devices. Fortunately, it was also a benign attack: no one got hurt, no one died. However, the next attack could be catastrophic. No one knows when it will happen. No one knows the magnitude. Read more

Android Marshmallow on PC Falls Flat

The Android-x86 Project eventually may become a viable operating system alternative for your desktop and laptops computers, but it's not there yet. You will have to wait a while for the developers to fix a number of failures with the latest release upgrading Android-x86 to Marshmallow 6.0.1. The developers late this summer released the first stable version of Android-x86 6.0, codenamed "Marshmallow." Android-x86 lets you run the Android OS with the Google Chrome browser on your desktop and laptop computers, rather than buying one of the qualified Chromebooks with the Google Play Store features bolted on.
