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.

Don't see them suing Red Hat any time soon. To do that by proxy they would have to sue Oracle, IBM, Google and several other companies that distribute or use RHEL.

Also none of the companies I listed are fans of MS.

Will be interesting to see what happens.
