Right... I hope you don't expect Linux people to get excited about that just because it is Microsoft that he "beat".
- At least one of the stories is PR nonsense posing as journalism.
- He beat them based on his software patent!
- The patent is for DRM!
- He also goes around patenting nonsense things like compression methods for "reducing the size of stored digital data by up to 98 per cent" _________________ DEATH TO SPREADSHEETS
