Red Hat While Microsoft is hoping to enter into a patent deal with Red Hat similar to the one it has with Novell, the software giant has not ruled out going it alone and providing some sort of indemnification for its customers who use Red Hat Linux. Bill Hilf, Microsoft's general manager of platform strategy, acknowledged that it is an awkward situation having Microsoft's customers who use Novell's SUSE Linux covered by the covenant not to sue, while those Windows users running Red Hat Linux are not.

Of course, the real reason for this continued talk is to try to establish the meme that OSS users need indemnification. Expect more of this. They believe that if they just keep saying this long enough, people would come to believe it is true.

I couldnīt agree more ...
