Let's see...
The Microsoft corporation funds a study that shows that legal issues could be a top concern for corporations switching to Linux.
SCO promotes the issue of legal concerns with Linux and recieves money from Microsoft.
Microsoft also expresses the "fact" that Linux has pirated Microsoft code besides other misappropriated code.
Microsoft plans to run a test facility with both M$ and Linux software.

Get a clue. Microsoft plans to give Linux a full body slam.

Can you provide a link where Microsoft claims to have Microsoft code in Linux, or is it something you expect Microsoft to do in the near future?

If IBM would win the SCO case, what could Microsoft do next?

"There's no question that in cloning activities, IP from many, many companies, including Microsoft, is being used in open-source software," Gates said.

microshaft is just afraid that more pc companies are going to follow HP's lead and offer consumer pc's pre-loaded with Linux. Imagine that--a computer that is not only more stable but also is cheaper because they don't have to pay microshaft for winblows, thereby passing the savings on to the consumer!
