Here is the second video in the "history of unix" short videos. The first video was on the "great history of UNIX" and this second video covers the "years of legal battles" in a very short, dramatic, cinematic presentation.
In this video, we spend 95 seconds of your valuable time to bring you a brief history of the dark years of UNIX.
This video starts in 2003 when SCO filed their first lawsuit against IBM and put the entire global Linux community on legal notice; and ends in 2011 when a US appeals court renders their final judgement against SCO and confirms a jury verdict that Novell was the owner of the UNIX licenses.
The story for this brief timeline has been summarized from articles on Wikipedia and Groklaw.

It's a video, so just hit the pause button
If I make if "slower" some will complain it is too slow, so better to keep it faster and if anyone really wants to read something in detail, they can pause or play again
I agree I should have made the type bigger in that frame, but then I would have had to make some major changes to the structure of the After Effects file and render again, so I called it "good enough for now".
Cheers and Thanks.
Glad you liked it. I was not going to make it, but then decided "what the heck" when I ran across that epic, dramatic sound track, which had the "sad mood" the story needed.
Now, that "that sad history video" is done, I can go on to make something more positive and cheerful

Hello - I have a folder that contains files from 2003 till 2010. I am trying to figure out a command that would seperate each years file and show me a count?
Even if i can find a command that would give me year by year count, thats good enough too.
