Some more M$ reading:

They'll do anything to make a buck, won't they?

Personally I don't defend corporations like Red Hat and Canonical...

Though MS seems nicer lately, "business is business" and personally I think the old ingrained culture of "embrace, extend, and extinguish" is still alive and well, it's just been put on ice for now. MS is still patent trolling, just by proxy rather than directly. But as other corporate entities have essentially "owned" Linux, MS may be wising up (just a little)...

Yes, Microsoft is very “excited” about patent extortion against GNU/Linux. They just say it with a smile and euphemistically call it “Azure IP Advantage”.[...]

As Microsoft also controls some of the [patent] trolls, it can help determine who gets sued. The potential for abuse is vast.

Don’t expect Red Hat or Canonical or even the Linux Foundation to say anything about it. The Linux Foundation is far too busy sucking up to Microsoft this week, having received Microsoft cash for silence and complicity. Even when Microsoft attacks Linux with patents the Linux Foundation will say nothing at all because these attacks often come from proxies, just as the OIN’s CEO [Keith Bergelt] warned us a long time ago.
Yep...

Sounds like business, what would Trump say?

Don't have to believe in e*volution to except it within eg computing, my money's on freedom.
