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?

Wouldn't those changes be made so that Linux would run competitively under MS Hyper-V? If this is the case, it would make sense to me since VMWare and Citrix are their main Competition in this area.

*** Update ***

Comments regarding Hyper-V were already mentioned.
