|I've been a Microsoft watcher for a long time, and one thing I can say is that I have never ever seen Microsoft act with any motive other than its own benefit.
If someone wants to rejoice in Microsoft's move, then that someone should wait until the other shoe drops.
Sorry Microsoft, you have 20+ years of Evil to overcome, it won't be easy for you.
Read Roy Schestowitz article on the subject. He sums it up well.

Let's see, so far M$ is guilty of
- EEE (that's Embrace, Extend, Extinguish)
- Using its key remaining <30K patents to bludgeon competition through its continued "relationship$" with IP PATENT TROLLS ( http://techrights.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/microsoft-a... )

At Microsoft, getting patents right is critical. Not only do they underpin the products and services that the company sells, they also stimulate ideas that keep it growing and competitive.
“We’re a technology company focused on innovation—intellectual property is our product,” says Michelle Crosslin, a paralegal lead in Microsoft Corporate, External, and Legal Affairs (CELA). “Our patents protect our intellectual property and our customers.”
The intellectual muscle behind the company’s 90,000 active patents is a strategic asset that allows it to keep its competitive edge. Keeping that edge razor sharp is crucial. It’s also something that has become more challenging as the company grows, its patent management processes age, and its competitors get faster.

|Excellent points flufferbeer. The proof is in the actions not in the talk. Let's see if patent attacks from Microsoft and associates will stop or will continue.|

|It looks like Microsoft's patent trolls are just continuing with "business as usual" with their lawsuits. See today's article by Roy Schestowitz: http://lxer.com/module/newswire/view/261716/index.html|
