Groklaw has a story about Steve Ballmer explicitly threatening Red Hat users at a Q&A in the UK. Here's the video with this statement: "For the appropriate fee Novell customers also get essentially the rights to use our patented intellectual property. And I think it's great, the way Novell stepped up to kind of say: 'intellectual property matters'. People who use Red Hat, at least with respect to our intellectual property, in a sense have an obligation eventually to compensate us." That video has been already linked to on
/., but I guess noone catched that gem before.
