Ballmer: Linux Users Owe Microsoft.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer stated at the Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS) conference in Seattle yesterday, that Linux infringes upon his company's intellectual property. Does this signal preparations for all out war against the open source community
? Microsoft's recent acquisition of Novell
was seen as an ominous sign. Or perhaps it's a sign that user friendly versions of linux such as Ubuntu
threaten sales of Microsoft's problematic new VISTA OS
, scheduled for release Nov. 30th for businesses and Jan. 30, 2007 for consumers?

SCO is at it again
... this time they've asked a federal judge to declare that Linux's general public license — a backbone of the free software movement — unconstitutional.
Let's hope the judge has more sense than SCO.

uses a 'Dukes of Hazzard' metaphor to explain that big ol' SCO vs. Linux kerfuffle.
