+ - Microsoft Won't Sue Over Linux Patents

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Redmond has no plans to take open-source vendors to court...for now. From a zdnet story: "If we wanted to go down that road we could have done that three years ago," said a Microsoft spokesperson. "Rather than litigate, Microsoft has spent the last three years building an intellectual property bridge that works for all parties — including open source — and the customer response has been tremendously positive. Our focus is on continuing to build bridges." The infringement allegations, made by Microsoft in a Fortune magazine article, were that free and open-source software violated more than 230 of its patents."
