Microsoft vs Opensource

Microsoft general counsel Brad Smith told Fortune that open source software violates 235 Microsoft patents, it sent tremors through the tech industry.

It's ironic that Microsoft is making these statements, considering how they benefited from a ruling by the Supreme Court last week that stated U.S. companies could not sue other U.S. companies in U.S. courts for patents infringed upon in other countries. Is Microsoft really going to seek royalties from every company in the world that is using some version of Linux?

:) brief, but says it all. I like that, so probably must to have it here too!
