Legal If you can't compete, litigate. This train of thought has been quite prevalent among major technology companies as of late, most notably by Apple and Microsoft, who both cannot compete with Android on merit, so they have to resort to patent lawsuits and FUD. Both Asustek and Acer have revealed that Microsoft plans to impose royalty fees upon the two Taiwanese hardware makers to prevent them from shipping Android and/or Chrome OS devices.

Novell is not a victim of MS in any way shape or form. Netware sucks, it's that simple. After version 3.x, it just continued to get crappier and crappier, without any real direction, and as Win NT and Linux became more capable, stable and useful, Netware fell to the wayside.

Novell's efforts to stay in the game were hurt by mismanagement, the purchase, mutilation, and sale of Word Perfect, and a management that has the corporate version of ADHD.

How are amazon and LG victims of MSs anything? Amazon is a huge business, doing well, and really doesn't have too much to do with MS, and LG is one of the largest manufacturers in the world, making, well everything. I have LG monitors, LG burners, an LG washer and dryer, and probably half a dozen rebranded LG products kicking around my house.
