Microsoft Sometimes, some things are just too good to be true. Earlier this week, Microsoft made a relatively stunning announcement that it would contribute some 20000 lines of code to the Linux kernel, licensed under the GPL. Microsoft isn't particularly fond of either Linux or the GPL, so this was pretty big news. As it turns out, the code drop was brought on by... A GPL violation.

What about IP?

So Microsoft cares about their IP (related to patents) but then disregards copyrights from other parties? <sarcasm>What I shock!</sarcasm>. Remind steveb about things like this next time he opens his big mouth to complain about us GNU/Linux users owing him something for our stealing of their IP.
