Ubuntu features double-clicking of the mouse, which infringes on a Microsoft patent, so they must have had it coming. :shake:

Ah, I see. For Ubuntu's sake, I certainly hope it isn't as old as Ubuntu.

I wouldn't doubt if Microsoft would steal anything from open source...I remember a couple years ago when someone was taking Microsoft to court to see if any of their source code contained UNIX or Linux code. Unfortunatly Microsoft won. When you have control of the market and plenty of money it's easy to take out the small guys...

The whole point with Ubuntu is that it can't be ripped off.




Linux is free, but there are restrictions on how you can use it commercially. You can take open-source code and insert it into something else, but that something else must also be open-source. And you have to give credit to the original author. BSD, on the other hand, you can grab and use however you want, a la OSX.

How all this applies to their logos and such, I don't know.
