Submission + - Mandriva has no plan to sign agreement with MS

boklm writes: "François Bancilhon, Mandriva's CEO announced on his blog today that Mandriva had no plan to sign any patent deal with Microsoft. He says that "we [Mandriva] believe that the best way to deal with interoperability is open standards, such as ODF", that "we are, to say the least, not great fans of software patents and of the current patent system" and that "there has been absolutely no hard evidence from any of the FUD propagators that Linux and open source applications are in breach of any patents"."

Your good nature will bring you unbounded happiness.
