  1. Crouching Microsoft, Hidden Patents
  2.  
  3. This story is two fold:
  4.  
  5. (1) Possible moves to overthrow or replace Debian & other pressure points
  6. (2) MS patent licensing deal with Rakuten covering Android AND
  7.     Linux devices!
  8.

  11. (1) Well... THAT didn't take very long.

  15. Microsoft Releasing a Debian Linux Networking Distro (Jan/Feb/Mar?? 2016)
  16.  
  17. damn, that and the donation to OpenBSD is pretty much chess moves, IMO.
  18.  
  19. All MS should do is buy up Canonical/RedHat and knock over the systemd
  20. distros with some type of patent(s) and/or buy some out and that leaves
  21. a tiny amount of 'fringe' distros. Debian will probably be gobbled up
  22. in the process (what happened with Corel Linux and further down the
  23. line, that party with Novell?) and BSD wouldn't be too difficult to
  24. buy/donate out anyway. WINE could possibly have patent(s) suits
  25. against it...So what's left?
  26.  
  27. Hurd, my good man, where HAVE you been?
