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?

Apparently anything that microsoft does it bad ...

I would have to say that yes, everything they do to help MICROSOFT and MICROSOFT'S PRODUCTS only, at the epxense of their competition is bad. Is there a Hyper-V for Linux yet? I bet not--but they sure do want to run on the bare metal of servers, and put everything else under them where they cannot control. They already are known as an abusive monopoly, are they not? They're less of a monopoly, but I wouldn't give the bastards a chance. They've proved time and time again that everything they do, no matter how nice it seems, always ends in backstabbing and bloodshed... to their competitors. And often unfairly, and even flat-out illegally... in their own f***ing home country.
