+ - GNU/Linux NAS Company Taxed by M$ Patents.->

twitter writes "How would you like to have a GNU/Linux NAS RAID device that's low power and very flexible, thanks to software freedom? Melco Group's Buffalo line is just that and has long been the subject of rave reviews. If you want one, you will have to pay M$ now, because the company is the latest patent shakedown victim.

the contents of the agreement have not been disclosed, the parties indicate that the only financial consideration in this agreement is royalties paid by Melco Group to Microsoft.

It seems as if anything that touches Windows is subject to this kind of threat and that we will never learn the details."
