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.

Yea like WTF does it take 10 minutes + for my computer to boot and be usable in Vista? And why does it have to slowly redraw and load files in windows explorer? Why does Windows Explorer crash so often (at least it doesn't make the whole system crash anymore). Vista is craptastic but due to MSFT's monopoly on school systems I still have to have a partition of it.

IOW there's no way Linux violates MSFT patents because they don't even resemble them - Linux's apps. work!
