Submission + - Shuttleworth: No negotiations with Microsoft! (

An anonymous reader writes: Seeking to end the various discussions about Ubuntu partnering with Microsoft, Mark Shuttleworth, with a post to his blog today, makes it clear that they have "declined to discuss any agreement with Microsoft under the threat of unspecified patent infringements". Shuttleworth seems to share most peoples' feelings on this entire business by saying that 'Allegations of "infringement of unspecified patents" carry no weight whatsoever.'

Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.
