Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "There's a rumour circulating that Ubuntu is in discussions with Microsoft aimed at an agreement along the lines they have concluded recently with Linspire, Xandros, Novell, etc. For the record, let me state my position, and I think this is also roughly the position of Canonical and the Ubuntu Community Council though I haven't caucused with the CC on this specifically. We have declined to discuss any agreement with Microsoft under the threat of unspecified patent infringements."

Every word I've read about those "unspecified patent infringements" said that those patents are probably one big joke and MS not telling what they really are is proving this. If everyone knows that than Linspire, Xandros and Novell knows that too. If they are making any agreements about it that either they know more than others or there is a big fat bag of cash they got from MS. I will bet on the second possibility.
