    Google To Join Group To Protect Linux
    'Google To Join Group To Protect Linux From Possible Patent Challenge'

    Guess that comes after warning back in May 'Linux Foundation To Microsoft: Touch One Of Us, Fight Us All'

    Is Google sending message to MS to improve IE or else?

    In May when Microsoft was thumping its chest, there were accusations that Linux had infringed on some of Microsoft's patents. Interestingly enough, Microsoft toned down their allegations and said they were not going to sue. This is in sharp contrast to other times when they have either gone after or made life miserable for a Linux distribution.

    I don 't believe Google is entering the tiff, however with the continued expansion of Linux users, Google has stepped forward and is protecting, not only themselves, but Linux users.
    google has deep pockets if a fight would ensue!
