Hello All,
I guess as always microsoft will try everything thing it has to stand against 
the vast spread of open-source operating systems and software, they clam 
their patent violation on some softwares by relaying on English words and 
even key-board shortcuts. 
Lucky, up till now no court, not even the American ones could or hopefully 
ever will give them the right or make them win a case.
