Microsoft is holding a Windows 98 "release party" in Connecticut, (and
all over the country), on June 25th. The event will be held at the Lincoln
Theatres, 200 Bloomfield Avenue in West Hartford, starting at 7:00 PM.

CFUG, the Connecticut Free Unix Group, is planning a major presence at the
event, in another one of our ongoing public free un*x advocacy stunts. :) 

We plan to give away as many linux and FreeBSD CD's as possible, in our
usual [if often futile] attempts at combating ignorance, and introducing
Windows fanatics to a better alternative.

Here is the official page with all the info:

I especially like the part about how "Microsoft representatives will be
on-site to answer your Windows 98 questions." I have quite a few that I   
think will cause some flush-faced stuttering and tie-loosening.   

If you want to help, either by donating CD's or t-shirts, or if you are a
media person who wishes to cover the story, please email

In solidarity,

		       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.
