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.

Microsoft cannot possibly be allowed to exist like this much longer. This is like Hitler strolling across Europe, rather freely, in the mid-1930s and occupying whatever country he pleased. At some point, someone is going to have to draw a line in the sand and say, "Enough of your bullsh*t!". I hope Google is the one to do it.
