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.

Aslong as Microsoft has to pay all whatever IP bullshit they break themself and someone figure out the current system doesn't work. If noone does I guess american parts of it all are screwed since Microsoft would probably gladely pay anyone for anything aslong as it kill all their competition...

(... just look at Xbox, althought it's not working ;D)
