Legal Microsoft has been granted a stay of a landmark injunction in a patent infringement case that would have required the software giant to stop selling its popular Word in its current form by next month.

Get off your soapbox. Microsoft knowingly stole their IP. And its not a patent on XML. Maybe it is obvious, but that is a different matter. Bad Troll! Bad!
