So, who's next? Well, that same morning, I was thinking about Ubuntu as another possible candidate.

Mark Shuttleworth, CEO of Canonical Ltd., the company behind Ubuntu, had never been as hostile towards Microsoft as some Linux leaders. I mean, this is the Linux leader who's recently said “I'd love to work with Microsoft…”

And then found in his blog, Mark Shuttleworth writes:


Mark Shuttleworth says:

Neither Canonical nor the Ubuntu project have any interest in signing an agreement with Microsoft on the back of the threat of unspecified patents. We have consistently (but politely ) declined to pursue those conversations with Microsoft, in the absence of any details of the alleged patent infringements.
