<SNAP!!!> I knew it! Embrace, Extend, EXTINGUISH! Patent traps inside Linux? Mr Torvalds needs to BLACKLIST ALL M$ code from the Linux Kernel! PERIOD... Even if it means rolling back to an earlier version and starting over with new additions! I believe he has the right to do that since Linus Torvalds OWNS the Linux mark... I would not be surprised in the least if M$ is trying to snake it's way into STEALING Linux so that they can destroy it.
