4. launch new start-up (sept)

microsoft: use windows or we’ll sue

From boingboing:

Microsoft has announced that Free Software users — including everyone who … uses Ubuntu Linux — are violating at least 235 of Microsoft’s patents, though they don’t say which ones. Microsoft are now threatening end users of GNU/Linux (that’s you and me again) with lawsuits unless we pay them protection money. “Nice operating system you got there, it’d be a shame if something were to happen to it.”
