That is not something Microsoft could leverage.
Actually, it is something Linux can leverage against Microsoft, because
Microsoft keeps on telling people that using GPL is a nightmare because
it forces all your intellectual property on the street for free. They
proved that wrong themselves. That is quite a strong argument. It
should be publicized, not buried. We should thank them publicly.
