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.

Then Why Do We Need GPL at all?

If linux developers are Saints and MS is Satan, why do we need GPL V1,2, all?

Are GPL violations in linux=Patent violations in MS??

Wait, tomorrow hardware mfgs will come after linux developers for reverse engineering or patent violations, then what?

Instead of bashing MS why can't Mr Linus and others file a defamation lawsuit against MS? their tight lipping creates doubts in ordinary users' mind
