Legal Since it's Easter (it spans two days in The Netherlands), what better to talk about than patents? Microsoft has just bought most of AOL's patents, and took up a license for the remainder bit they didn't buy. Microsoft also bought all the patents belonging to AOL subsidiary Netscape. Uh-oh.

Microsoft as we know it is slowly dyeing as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is getting increasingly common.

In the future we can stream heavy apps through a browser, no need to deploy msi files or crap to clients, and no need to use windows. All will work, as long as you got a browser. ;)

I'm really enjoying the thought of this, and I wish MS worst luck. But its a big beast, and will make a livin hell for all while it dies.

Use linux and open source and make the world a better place ;)
