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.

Here's what I really worry about...
I'm concerned that Linux is causing cancer, probably through its effects on accelerating global warming. It's turning children against their parents, and soon we'll have a completely anarchistic society, where crowds of poor, wretched, open source software engineers carry torches in the dark of night, beating down the doors of all the fun-loving monopolistic proprietary billionaire software makers, making tatters of the world that they, out of their own god-like goodness have created for all of mankind. Can't a billionaire just live in peace?!
