Linux Alan Cox talks about cooperation with hardware vendors, patent law, microkernels, and GPLv3: "I think [the MS-Novell deal] is a bad idea and that Novell are going to get stung by the GPLv3, and rightfully so. The license is designed to keep the software free, if it fails to do this then it needs fixing, so GPLv3 hopefully will fix this flaw."

It's Microsoft who have the billions and who are therefore at greatest risk from patent trolls.


Not really, it's the little guy who is at the biggest risk simply becuase a company like MS can afford a few lawsuits from patent trolls, the little guys usually just go out of business.
