The GPL, Stage Front and Center - IBM Answers SCO's Attack

I hope Novell and Microsoft read this quotation from this IBM filing, its Redacted Memorandum in Opposition to SCO's Motion for Summary Judgment on IBM's Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Counterclaims. Then just apply it, and we can all be friends. Joke, joke. I know Microsoft isn't looking for friendship. It's looking to kill the GPL. Why would anyone help them?
