Microsoft Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer has warned users of Red Hat Linux that they will have to pay Microsoft for its intellectual property. "People who use Red Hat, at least with respect to our intellectual property, in a sense have an obligation to compensate us," Ballmer said last week at a company event in London discussing online services in the UK.

What is it with this guy? They have been going back and forth on this for years and they haven't produced any evidence that there *is* infringement. Even if there were, the company distributing it should be liable, not the users. I am not a violent man, but I really feel like slapping Ballmer in the face on occasion.
