Raiden's Realm: All the recent huss and fuss over Microsoft's patent FUD campaign and their "we will sue you unless you pay us grievous amounts of cash" threatening of Linux is only the tip of the iceberg in a much larger war.
Matt Asay: I must admit that I am shocked - SHOCKED - that Microsoft found that its software is better than open source software on the desktop for European schools. Shocked, I tell you!
