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.

Eventhough Apple's whole MO is to be anti-MS they are actually very similar in how they handle their business. If the tables were turned and Apple were to be the big dog, trust me it would be far worst. I genuinely like apple, NOW, primarily because the company was forced to actually make good products to survive, but that's not to say I'm naive about their business practices and how they have screwed the little guy just as much as MS has.
