Are you using Linux? Do you proudly wear the Penguin? If yes, well then there are chances that soon you’ll be hauled into a court of law in patent lawsuits. Atleast that’s what Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said in Microsoft’s Asian Government’s Leaders Forum in Singapore, reports Reuters. Steve also added that Linux violates over 228 patents & there are chances that someone will demand money for all that intellectual property rights. One big example is SCO Group Inc. who claims that Linux is based on its Unix & is suing big boys like IBM, etc.
On the other hand, Chinese government sees Microsoft products as a security threat. They think that certain patches for windows will enable US Govt. to control Chinese networks & disable them in case of war. Well, I don’t dis-agree with them. You can expect the impossible from Microsoft & you certainly can expect anything from US Govt. 👿
