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?

You make this statement so matter-of-factly, as if it is obviously true that math is invented, when in fact many (perhaps most) think the opposite. It's certainly not easy to argue one case or the other and AFAIK, the problem is unresolved.
