Legal If you can't compete, litigate. This train of thought has been quite prevalent among major technology companies as of late, most notably by Apple and Microsoft, who both cannot compete with Android on merit, so they have to resort to patent lawsuits and FUD. Both Asustek and Acer have revealed that Microsoft plans to impose royalty fees upon the two Taiwanese hardware makers to prevent them from shipping Android and/or Chrome OS devices.

That tin foil hat is pretty snug huh? Funny how people aren't allowed to have dissenting opinions without getting accused of being paid by company X. There really are free thinkers that happen disagree with you; this doesn't make them "paid M$ $hills", it just means that they disagree. Making baseless accusations doesn't strengthen your argument, it weakens it.
