Legal "Linus Torvalds just can't help but be a thorn in Microsoft's side. First, he created an open source project that completely upset Microsoft's business model. And now, he has helped shoot down an important Microsoft patent in Redmond's crusade to wring licensing dollars out of Google Android and other versions of Linux."

Reading Linus' mail that helped invalidate this patent really show how much these patents are stupid.

I mean, take 20 programmers, ask them how they would handle long filenames and you'll probably get 10 answers pretty close to Linus' one.
