It is, isn't it?

What you have to remember is that this is the Microsoft marketing machine 
going to work.  Microsoft has spent millions over the years to create the 
illusionary image that they are single-handedly responsible for all 
innovation in the tech industry, and this whole patent nonsense is simply an 
extension of that.  They don't want to name patents, they just want to make 
PHB's think that FLOSS is stealing ideas from Microsoft without paying.  
Which of course is complete BS.

Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
