Microsoft claims software like Linux violates its patents – May 28, 2007

Here it comes, folks. This enlightening article serves up a dose of reality in the coming patent war. It’s scary stuff: Microsoft names/counts the infringing patents; Microsoft wants patent royalties from the USERS of FOSS; Microsoft might become a distributor of Linux thanks to the GPL loophole closure… all of the patent hilarity that could bring the entire industry to a screeching, mutually-assured halt.

Fabulous, fabulous stuff. I can hardly wait to see what happens.

You there with the new Windows Vista install… yeah you, fanboy… read up on this and decide if you want your money financing this corporate terrorism.
