Hmm... good point. However, but if McDonalds is SCO shop, I would still
be willing to bet that it would be cheaper to switch to windows. Since
they are a SCO shop, chances are good they aren't going to switch to
Linux as long SCO is still alive.

I'd be willing to bet that if MacDonalds hinted they were going to
overhaul their IT infrastructure, whatever staff is left at SCO would be
kissing there behinds.
