Comic Transcript

ALEX: So your plan is essentially to sue the company you want to buy you out?

SCO: Not company. Companies. We’re going to sue until it sticks.

ALEX: That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.

ALEX: UNIX tech – and what is this technology we’re using?

SCO: Er… the filesystem.
