We are still waiting for Mach.  Mike Bushnell, a GNU staff programmer,
says that the code for the microkernel itself looks clean enough.

Supposedly the lawyers at CMU are now choosing the details of the
wording for the copying conditions.

Meanwhile, we are preparing to start work on turning POE (a partial
emulator for Unix on top of Mach) into a full emulation.  Just as
soon as they put the proper notices into the source files.

(CMU says that POE doesn't stand for anything, but I think it stands
for "Preserve Our Essence".)

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
