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?

Linux users will not be virtualising on top of windows. Only windows users that need something from linux will be using hyper-V.


I understand what you're trying to say, but I think it's a false dichotomy. Just because somebody is running Linux in a virtual machine doesn't mean they're not a "Linux user."
