Linux It's strange. Microsoft has been patent trolling the heck out of the Linux kernel for a long time now, and is still using these patents against Android today in its protection money scheme. However, as LWN.net illustrates, Microsoft makes quite a few contributions to the Linux kernel. Shouldn't this invalidate their patent claims?

This is really messing up my stereotypes.

Or a better analogy in this case: normal people contributing to the church of Scientology.

I prefer interoperability so it's all good. ;)
