Microsoft Well, paint me red and call me a girl scout, I totally did not see this one coming at all. This is so utterly surprising it made my brain explode. Hold on to your panties, because this will rock your world. After pressuring several smaller Android vendors into submission (and yes, HTC is still relatively small compared to other players), Microsoft is now moving on to the big one: Redmond is demanding $15 for every Samsung Android device sold. Samsung's choices are simple: pay up, or face another epic lawsuit.

I don't think Linux is toast ether.

But as we are seeing now even companies like Samsung with a lot more money (And Google it seems) are not willing to stand up to Microsoft ether. I am sure a company like Samsung would not just cave to giving a nice chunk of their profits to Microsoft if they thought Microsofts position was weak.
