At least this is a break from all the "XXXX joins/starts lawsuit against Microsoft".

Microsoft made about 16 billion dollars in 2008. Of that amount, 3 billion dollars came from its Entertainment and Devices Division (EDD). EDD includes 5 Microsoft businesses including MSN, Xbox, Zune, etc. Windows is Microsoft's big money maker. Always has been. So yes, they have a good reason to worry. XD

Microsoft, leave Linux out of this, its not Nix' fault that you stole all their ideas

Apple stole much more from Linux then Microsoft, infact Apple even refuses to acknowledge the linux portions are ripped.

TomTom should give a few of their satnavs to some Microsoft execs , that way they might find a clear route to getting their heads out of their asses.

With other GPS makers licensing the same technology, their case will be slim at best. I'm not sure how this is becoming a Microsoft vs. Linux thing when TomTom is the one that is allegedly violating patent rights.
