Boycott Novell: "Summary: Assorted new reports about how Microsoft abuses “open source” to gain control of it, change its direction and goals, or even to misuse the label to promote proprietary software that harms standards and promotes patenting of software"
The Register: "But why does Microsoft make money from Google's software? Android is based on open source software - and Microsoft has long raised fears that aspects of Linux may infringe on its patents."
Cyber Cynic: "Microsoft has never proven, or even attempted to prove, any of these claims. That hasn't, however, stopped Microsoft from using the threat of Linux patent lawsuit to force companies like Amazon into paying them off."
Open Source Initiative: "One of the most interesting things to happen in the past couple of years, is Microsoft's embrace of Open Source. This means different things to various people I've spoken with at Microsoft. Some seem genuinely sincere. Some seem less so. What hasn't changed is Microsoft's behavior to the Open Source community at large."
