Is SCO Linux's Best Friend?

The first of SCO's cases against users of Linux has been summarily dismissed. Ironically, it may turn out that the SCO lawsuits help Linux in the long run:
"SCO's purpose in pursuing a very public, aggressive litigation strategy, would seem to be to undermine the public's confidence in the rival Linux operating system by suggesting that it contains infringing materials," he said. "Ironically though, if it continues to suffer such severe setbacks, it may instead succeed in permanently validating Linux by publicly demonstrating its legitimacy."
Or maybe it's just that any press is good press, as long as your still standing afterwards.
