IBM Helped Fund Web Hosting for SCO as Well
Before Groklaw even existed, Caldera (and later SCO) used IBM-donated servers at ibiblio.org to host a mirror of its ftp site.  An index of the contents is still maintained by archive.org (look for distro.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/caldera).  The mirror was apparently actively maintained by Caldera/SCO.  Originally it contained copies of the Caldera OpenLinux distro, but eventually contained copies of support files for OpenServer and UnixWare, SCO's proprietary UNIX product.  SCO continued to deposit files there even after filing its lawsuit against IBM.  For the first year of its existence, Groklaw was co-hosted on exactly the same IBM-donated servers at ibibilo.org that contained this mirror of SCO's ftp site.


Funny how Paul McDougall never mentioned this fact.
