    The thing is that M$ as usual will just keep appealin' until they either ultimately loose (and even then they seem to win) or, as in nearly all cases, the smaller company runs out of money.

    That seems to be their strategy. They want to give some job to their Legal advisors.
    In this case too the company would have been gone even before they could have started the fight. Fortunately they won that insurance suit. Damn M$ strategies

    I hope lindows does survive. it is going to hurt having their own insurance company sue then at the same time. m$ arms reach across the nation. this tactic has drained the resources of that little company. its sad cuz they cant afford to support their own product.

    on a brighter note. i feel there m$ will be reduced to a shell of its former self within 5 years. their office xp tactics and mrd software have incited gov's around the world to use linux and openoffice.

    it was nice to see that in Lindows case that they will get monetary help from their insurance company now.
    i also heard that companies like IBM and HP are promoting Linux and other open source softwares by pre-installing them on their machines.
    if i heard it right then may be it is beginning of a new trend.
