Microsoft Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer has warned users of Red Hat Linux that they will have to pay Microsoft for its intellectual property. "People who use Red Hat, at least with respect to our intellectual property, in a sense have an obligation to compensate us," Ballmer said last week at a company event in London discussing online services in the UK.

Considering the smashing success that is Vista (its best feature is that given a few more months/years it may be *as* good as XP!) it seems MS's #1 product it has to sell anymore is the assurance not to force you to pay them for nothing. Their market gorging has left them with a money addiction, and they'll do almost anything now to try and sate it.
