Microsoft Well, paint me red and call me a girl scout, I totally did not see this one coming at all. This is so utterly surprising it made my brain explode. Hold on to your panties, because this will rock your world. After pressuring several smaller Android vendors into submission (and yes, HTC is still relatively small compared to other players), Microsoft is now moving on to the big one: Redmond is demanding $15 for every Samsung Android device sold. Samsung's choices are simple: pay up, or face another epic lawsuit.

My thought exactly! At first boot you should be presented with different free mobile-OSes to download and install.

And what OS will be providing that functionality? It'll be vunerable to patents as well.

Is a non commercial product (given away for free) vulnerable to patents? Can someone take me to court for serving homemade coca cola (or whatever) for free?
