Microsoft In its second such agreement this week, Microsoft has struck a deal under which it will extend amnesty to a company that's using what the software maker claims is patented Microsoft intellectual property embedded in the open source Linux computer operating system. Under a deal with LG Electronics, disclosed late Wednesday, Microsoft will forgo any Linux-related patent claims against the South Korean electronics manufacturer. In return, Microsoft will gain access to certain intellectual property produced by LG.

This has nothing to do with Linux. Then Microsoft should direct their FUD efforts towards mplayer and the filesystem guys. And in the end it's all "thinking, supposing, presuming" etc. This has no substance.
enlighten me. did they contact torvalds or distribution-vendors?
