Hey there - Did you read about Open Invention Network? Check this out on CNN: http://money.cnn.com/2005/11/10/technology/linux.reut/index.htm
IBM has partnered with Sony, Phillips Red Hat and Novell to create Open Invention Network. (OIN) Quoting the article linked above, "If OIN's approach to managing intellectual property wins acceptance, it could overcome a big stumbling block to wider corporate adoption of Linux and pose challenges for major opponent Microsoft Corp. (Research), which has argued that relying on "open source" software poses legal risks."
Ok, so not so sure that there is a stumbling block to corporate adoption of Linux - you have seen the growth rates but clearly this is another step of broadening the market for Linux.
Hope you are enjoying the beautiful fall weather and note that more change is in the air! Stay tuned!
Microsoft looking over their shoulder?
