    What are the frank repercussions of this, besides M$ wanting to take over the world step-by-step?

    I don't think they'll necessarily use Unix, but just cover their bums in case SCO was looking to sue.

    I think they took a litttle bit of money out of their warchest (illegal gotten for the most part) and gave it to SCO for this reason, so some precedent is set by a corporation and that other corps will just find it that much easy(forced to by their lawyers?) to give in.

    but the true inention might be to force all the linux companies to pay,(by fiat of microsoft's action) something of which many will not be able to do so.

    And even if they do pay their followers (people that use linux that think paying for software is sacrilege, will start to rant against their own.)
