A clearer statement than "we took our plaques off our wall" is needed, but assuming there is a clear statement from Tesla that they will only use these patents defensively, anyone who takes them at their word should be safe.

Telsa should have the CEO publicly post such a statement where Tesla will not initiate patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith, wants to use their technology. This will be quickly picked up by tech blogs and linked to the statement.

No one wants to use Linux or Windows. Have you tried to use an operating system? All you can do is copy files and set the time. It's fun the first few times, but it becomes boring really fast. No, people do not want to use an operating system; they want send email, browser the web, check stock quotes, send goofy pictures to their friends. That's what they want.
