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 makes me think that its simply a case of Microsoft getting their hooks into Linux.. i don't like this, i think its time to make a BSD licensed fork of Linux...
