    IBM wins $850M settlement from Microsoft

    Guess to Microsoft this is just a drop in the bucket...but it will open the door for other cases...it always does.


    Interesting footnote...

    Perhaps Microsoft's toughest competitive challenge today comes from the open-source Linux operating system, which has made steady gains especially in overseas markets. Some of Linux's biggest backing has come from IBM.
