Microsoft vs. Open Source–Don’t Worry

That’s the gist of this rather comforting post at groklaw.net about Microsoft’s claims of Linux patent infringement. It baffles me that a company which made over $12 billion in profits last fiscal year would stoop to the sort of patent trolling last seen from SCO Group.  It seems desperate.  It’s the kind of move I would expect from a company who had clearly lost the battle in the marketplace and didn’t have any other cards to play.
