[edit] Who writes these unsubstantiated claims

Who writes these unsubstantiated claims ? References to SCO patents lead to nowhere. There is also no evidence/example of "long history of using their patents" regarding Microsoft. AFAIK they have no such history (unless you count in spreading FUD).

Hi. Thanks for the feedback. I've fixed the broken references problem.
For problems with the content, feel free to jump in. If you thing a statement lacks credibility, you can delete it or add {{ref}} - this adds a "reference needed" tag.
As for Microsoft's history of aggression, I thought their aggressive use of the FAT patents was well known. The TomTom case got a lot of coverage, and their attacks on Salesforce.com were pretty recent. I thought this went without saying. Thanks for highlighting it. I'll add a link to make this easier to verify.
Critical views are very welcome. Hope you stick around. Ciaran 00:49, 22 August 2010 (UTC)
