Use Linux and you will be sued, Ballmer tells governments November 18, 2004

Posted by rjdohnert in Software reviews.

Is this the of future intent for Microsoft to sue for IP rights? I doubt it, but of course the most feverish of Linux users, you know the PUG’s I always talk about, PUG means Pimple-faced Undersexed Geek, are already up in arms claiming that Microsoft has declared Patent war, of course the head of this new IP “revolution” on the Linux side are Steven Vaughn-Nichols, eWeak and Robin Miller, Newsforge. Of course before they started their anti-Microsft dravel, they didnt research shit. OSRM, Open Source Risk Management made the claim that Linux violated on 289 patents. I read the transcript and heard the audio presentation and all Ballmer did was cite the report. Also, of course, who is to say IP owners will not sue Linux distributers and users for that cash, no one in the Linux community indemnifies.
