    This is nothing more than a shakedown. Microsoft claims that Linux infringes on certain patents but won't disclose which patents. Then it proceeds to shakedown any business that uses Linux. WHAT A JOKE! And the government lets Microsoft get away with pure unadulterated obvious extortion, not to mention monopoly.
