Submission + - Microsoft's Incomplete Response To Google Blog ( 1

sfcrazy writes: Microsoft did not address any of the major issues raised by Google such as charging $15 per device — more than what Microsoft charges for its own mobile OS.

If Microsoft thinks that the cost of few unknown patents is $15 then the entire cost of Android OS should be some thousands of dollars or more. This is what doesn't make sense.

Brad Smith will make life easier for Linux developers if they specify the patents that they claim Linux/Android infringes upon. Where is that list? Why is Microsoft hiding it and attacking one Linux player after another and demanding such an outrageous price?
