Linux "Mid November, Steve Ballmer said 'Linux uses our intellectual property' and Microsoft wanted to 'get the appropriate economic return for our shareholders from our innovation.' Many people didn't understand what he really meant, among them the LXer editors.

You need a lot of cash and a lot of patience for that. Also, when you're finally done, the outcome is mostly irrelevant since so much time has passed.
