Microsoft Sues Lindows
from the bad-Lindows,-bad dept
Well, that didn't take long at all. Microsoft is suing Lindows for trademark violation. Lindows, of course, is the Michael Robertson company that is coming out with a modified version of Linux with Wine, to allow users to easily run Windows-based programs. I'm not sure how I feel about this one. I can see why Microsoft is suing, though, I really doubt that Lindows is going to confuse to many people into thinking it's a Microsoft supported project. The only thought here is the conspiracy theory that Microsoft is working on their own Linux distribution and want the name back for themselves - but that's just my delusional brain making stuff up.
