Soon using patents will be all that's left
MS threatened to sue B&N over patents. B&N says eff you and also paints in the media a picture of an ugly bully corporation. At the last minute a trial is averted and MS and B&N play buddies, Microsoft agree to invest a few hundred mills in some sort of a "joint venture".
Ah, yes, this has nothing at all to do with patents. Sure, Microsoft planed for years to get into a partnership with B&N, had nothing to do with the impending trial.
Me and my conspiracy theories.
Any developer who champions patents is a lower class developer.
As I see it, in order for preventing a trail, Microsoft paid b&n several millions for some sort of a wiered multi facetted deal. Now those hard earned $$ (blackmailed from other android makers) went down the drain. Yay :S
