Creditors begin a Thanksgiving feast with the ultimate parasite, SCO Group

SCO is being eaten alive. Finally.

PJ at Groklaw notes today that Microsoft is lining up to nibble on the remains of SCO as one of its largest creditors. But Microsoft is not alone in wanting to gnaw on a chunk of parasite flesh. As a list of SCO's top creditors shows [PDF], Sun, Veritas, Intel, Unisys, and others are smacking their lips for SCO's remains.

The world is not always fair. Sometimes, however, it's not fair enough. Too many SCO people made far too much money on its scam.
