This is the best I can transcribe the important part. Steve Ballmer says, “I think it’s great the way Novell stepped up to kinda say intellectual property matters. When people use Red Hat [shrug], at least with respect to our intellectual property, in a sense, have an obligation to eventually to compensate us.”
It’s one of those laws you invent when you are unable to compete… A bit like domestic laws that they pass in the US for surveillance, warrantless wiretapping and imprisonment without trial, even torture without reasonable evidence. ‘Intellectual’ ‘property’ ‘rights’ have intellectual about them, they are not tangibles property (just thought) and they are not Mother Nature-given rights. It’s about taking away rights (e.g. of competitors or opposing powers).
As imaginary as they are, Microsoft still refuses to name them. Is it the double-click? The tabbed browsing? The smiley? PageUp/Dn?
Microsoft's attacks on the digital sovereignty of countries involves lobbying, corruption, an attack on standards (e.g. ODF), an attack on FOSS policies, and even an attack on accurate reporting (truth itself)
UPS is the latest victim of Microsoft's shoddy back door with software on top of it (Windows); attempts to blame FOSS for data compromise actually divert attention from the real culprit, which is proprietary software
Microsoft's Windows-powered services are failing and Windows gets bricked by Microsoft patches, whereupon we are seeing yet more of Microsoft's vapourware tactics (focusing in imaginary, non-existent versions of Windows)
