There is an interesting japanese web site [ http://pc.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/2003/0709/sco.htm ] which covers a McBride presentation in Japan on  07/09/2003.
Check out Babelfish [ http://babelfish.altavista.com/ ] for a translation from Japanese into English.

Look at those powerpoint images:

They claim among other things "Patents", "Trade secrets" and "Copyrights"

Their "SCO Source Chronology" time table mentions their famous "Code Evaluation teams" (which finally went missing).
(BTW: Please somebody check that time table to correctness/differences)

This image shows "IBM derivative work contributions to Linux 2.5"

This image shows a count of claimed "IBM / Sequent files in Linux 2.5"
They seem to claim there that Linux 2.2 didn't contain any files.

This image presents their view of the "Linux Development Path"

Look at those numbers in the lower left corner of those slides.
http://pc.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/2003/0709/sco06.jpg

Highest number seems to be #31.
I would love to see those other slides...

<< Highest number seems to be #31. >>
Looks like 35 to me on sco07.jpg

<< I would love to see those other slides... >>

I can get you two more:

(http://pc.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/2003/0709/sco09.jpg gives Not Found)

And golly-gosh, they all have the EXIF data intact. They were taken with a Nikon D100 on 9 July 2003 and subsequently photoshopped (TM).

sco01.jpg 10:13:38 slide n/a Darl with greying temples
sco02.jpg 10:23:24 slide 15  Operating Systems
sco03.jpg 10:24:18 slide 16  UNIX Operating System
sco04.jpg 10:42:22 slide 27  SCOsource Chronology
sco05.jpg 10:57:49 slide 30  IBM [alleged] Derivative Works Contributions
sco06.jpg 11:00:50 slide 31  IBM/Sequent files in Linux
sco07.jpg 11:18:45 slide 35  Linux Development Path
sco08.jpg 11:23:21 slide 36? Dramatic increase in Unix Vendor contributions

I'd WAG this was a general presentation about SCO's business, and the Great Scam was depicted in about ten slides of forty-ish. The logical thing would be to discuss the company and then the two divisions' activities, so slides up to 14 possibly about the company, 16-26 possibly Openserver/Unixware roadmap. But look how much slower he goes on the Scam Slides:

1-14 M.I.A., fourteen slides in ten minutes
15 Operating systems
16-26 M.I.A., eleven slides in eighteen minutes
27-36?, ten slides in twenty-five minutes
