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.

Sue Microsoft!

I've said it once, and I will say it again: Sue Microsoft for libel. They will either be forced to present the alleged patents being infringed, or shamefuly admit that they are lying.

I believe they will not choose the first option, since MS patent technologies which are either not even invented by MS or are so trivial that only the fact that the US patent system is defunct allowed Microsoft to register such patents.
