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.

When the alternatives are the PS3 and Blu-Ray, either way is supporting a "stupid company" with very questionable business ethics.
At least its easier to live up to my "vow" never to buy Sony-branded products.

Besides, Microsoft doesn't own HD-DVD.
