Kind of :-). 
There are more attorneys on the IBM vs. SCO than there are members of
the BLU :-), and probably outnumber SCO employees :-). The IBM case is
the more interesting of the two cases in that SCO keeps trying to point
to evidence they have not presented even after being sanctioned by the
court. You've even got one expert who is saying IBM destroyed evidence
because the developers deleted their sandboxes. (Note that a sandbox is
a temporary area used when a developer checks out code from some source
control systems. I think if we backed up our Sandboxes at Spitbrook Rd.
we'd probably had to build another data center just to hold all that
