Operation Open Gates

Linux Business Week Exclusive: Linux Kernel To Be Re-Written To Counter Microsoft FUD (Linux Business Week): “BM, Intel, the Open Source Development Labs, and other industry lights are supposedly planning to announce that a consortium has been created that will rewrite the components in the Linux kernel that, it has been alleged, tread on other people’s IP – or at least the 27 Microsoft patents that Linux supposedly infringes. The aim? To rob Microsoft of the ability to scare customers off of Linux by saying that the operating system is a patent infringer, informed sources say.”

How pathetic that such a drastic action has to be taken, but there seems to be few alternatives. Who’s moving to Beaverton?
