Saying that Linux is going to be torn in two, makes for good press and lively debates, but this is certainly nothing new for Linux."

i agree. the truth is, if microsoft actually showed these patents, they'd be in a lot of hot water. that's why they don't. they're scared that the second they do, they'll all get overturned for prior art, obviousness, etc. any patent not overturned would get worked around.
