Google is going to acquire Novell and the Unix copyright

Some secret source inside Google Inc. reported to us, that Google is going to acquire Novell, the Company who brought you Novell Netware.

After all court fights between SCO and Novell, regarding the Unix Copyright, the Google Board was afraid to be sued by SCO, too, as most of Googles infrastructure is running on the illegal Unix derivate “Linux”.

Eric Schmidt, Google Board member and CEO of Google, said to, as reported by our secret source, Larry Page:

“I have no time or the money to fight against SCO. After the desaster of Google China, we need to save the money for bribing the old farts on the Chinese Government, that they open up the great firewall. Therefore we need to buy Novell and their staff, because Novell is the copyright holder of Unix, and you know I was at Novell, and when we have the copyright, we will be evil!”

It’s not known, when this will happen, but there is already a plan how Google will make revenue out of the new Unix Copyright.
