Legal This week's 'big' news on OSNews was about software patents. You know, those things that say you cannot stack four pixels on top of one another unless you pay money to the guy who invented four-pixel-stacks (or the guy who bought the guy who invented four-pixel-stacks). A company called IP Innovation, LLC, has sued Novell and Red Hat for infringement of the company's IP portfolio. Software patents are of course generally completely ridiculous, so I will not focus on that here. I want to focus on something else.

"Linux doesn't connect thousands of gamers worldwide"

I'd guess that billions of gamers or more are "connected" by linux being that it's a very popular server OS and most multiplayer games now have a *nix based multiplayer server available. Has the state government made some sort of comment on game playing computer owners?


I couldn't resist. I realize you meant that thousands of gamers are not running Linux for gaming on. How many have a dualboot is anyone's guess though.
