Linux It's strange. Microsoft has been patent trolling the heck out of the Linux kernel for a long time now, and is still using these patents against Android today in its protection money scheme. However, as LWN.net illustrates, Microsoft makes quite a few contributions to the Linux kernel. Shouldn't this invalidate their patent claims?

The microsoft patches only help lnux users that use Hyper VM a microsoft product.

In a mixed environment this is not a bad thing. Would it be better if they helped out more and contributed to things that don't specifically benefit their customers yes it would, it is not going to happen and at least they are trying to fix bugs that affect users of their products.
