    Players play the game and make it so.

    Hate everyone, including the system.

    Firebomb the stadium.

    With everyone in it.

    No, I just hate you. Wink

    Kidding aside, I think i'm entitled to hate these actions by Microsoft. And it puzzles me why there are developers who don't hate them.

    EDIT: I think they don't hate them because it might be the only Microsoft can try to push Windows Phone and Windows 8 so they can recuperate all the time and money invested in VS/C# Smiley

    Well, speaking for myself, I don't work for Microsoft or Motorola, I'm not investing money in either of them and nor am I a lawyer. So it's pretty much irrelevant which way it goes. Just another case of two massive multinationals having a little dispute in court. It'll get ruled one way or another and things will continue with one or other company possibly taking a slight hit in their profits. Happens every day, nothing to waste time worrying about.

    When it's a big corporate bullying a little developer (Hello Apple) or something liable to directly affect me, then I'll be happy to get bothered about it. Otherwise, life is simply too short. Chill out and have a beer instead. Smiley

    The big question becomes, what does this all mean? No, not in the sense of whether Google is now going to have to do some serious surgery to Android, or whether Microsoft and Apple are going to wax fat off royalties. Rather, I think the most important point is where these cases were held and what that tells us about how we need to reform something rather important.
