Linux The Linux community is splitting - right down the middle, at this point - over Microsoft's controversial claims that the open-source operating system infringes on patents it holds. Last Tuesday, Mandriva became the third Linux vendor within five days to say it isn't interested in signing a licensing deal with Microsoft to avoid possible infringement claims. A blog posting to that effect by Mandriva CEO Francois Bancilhon followed similar declarations by officials at Red Hat and Canonical.

MS won't show the patents, they would rather scare people in a silly attempt to force them to use the abomination known as "Vista" or pay extortion money for using Linux. At least MS is making it easy for us to know the unscrupulous Linux distros to avoid.
