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 illustrates, Microsoft makes quite a few contributions to the Linux kernel. Shouldn't this invalidate their patent claims?

RE[6]: say what

Linux users will not be virtualising on top of windows. Only windows users that need something from linux will be using hyper-V.

I understand what you're trying to say, but I think it's a false dichotomy. Just because somebody is running Linux in a virtual machine doesn't mean they're not a "Linux user."
