I don't care if the Wii is both fun and stimulating, I hope you die by being crucified upside down and set alight.

Fortune article on FOSS

Post by Mitch »

This is a fantastic article on Microsoft's attempts to obtain royalties on Linux and FOSS in general. It's very long but balanced and well written.

as far as i'm concerned, plaintiffs withhold evidence when they don't have a case. in this case, microsoft don't want to point out the apparent infringements because they're either trivial to workaround or nonexistant.
