GNU, GPL, Open Source Even though some believe that Microsoft's recent patent lawsuit against TomTom is a prelude to an all-out legal assault on Linux, that doesn't stop Bob Muglia, the company's president of Server and Tools Business, to look into the future and state that Microsoft's products will look more and more to open source software.

Not any of mine if I can help it. I think it is time for a new code license to specifically forbid companies from using your software.
