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.

SourceForge: be more selective with ads!

Oh, almost forgot to mention: ;)

SourceForge (and everyone else), please be selective who you let advertise on your site. It looks VERY VERY bad to see ads that say things like "Make Patent Pirates Pay". Ugh. (Sorry, but if that's your line of work, you're really really asking for it. Horrible!) I just can't fathom anyone enjoying such work or even tolerating such mentions. Ever heard the phrase "Better dead than smeg"?

Personally I'm more annoyed by the MS FUD ads that show up in almost every damn topic.
