Patent Infringement Lawsuit Filed Against Red Hat & Novell - Just Like Ballmer Predicted

Groklaw - Patent Infringement Lawsuit Filed Against Red Hat & Novell - Just Like Ballmer Predicted

Wow -- imagine that. Three days after Ballmer threatens the Linux world again, a company that's a known patent troll with two former Microsoft suits (one of them a former "Intellectual Property Manager") sues one of the biggest corporate vendors of Linux, Red Hat. (Novell was named in the lawsuit too, but who the hell cares about them anymore?)

Remember -- it's not a conspiracy if there's money to be made by somebody. Then, it's just business.
