QuoteCertainly if you live outside the US or from any jurisdiction that recognizes software patents, you might be in a safer standing.
QuoteThing is, Microsoft has been ripping off Mac, Unix, and Linux for years. For instance, IE7 implemented the same kinds of features that were pioneered with Firefox and Vista's file browsing is almost identical to that of Red Hat 9 Linux, written years ahead.In fact if you look at Vista's wiki, apparently parts of Vista are even based on Unix itself. If it was Linux they used I think someone ought to remind Microsoft how GNU works and force them to release the sources they used and modified like Linksys had to do when the use of a Linux-based firmware on their routers was discovered.
