Microsoft Wants To Sue You For Using Linux!

How dare you not pay the Microsoft Tax unbeliever!

Microsoft has been prevented from bullying Linux distributors into paying them protection money. So the next move seems to be door to door intimidation of regular Joes who want to use Linux.

Microsoft seem to be erring towards criminalizing the consumer possibly inspired by the model of the record industry, cos that's clearly worked out really well for them so far hasn't it?

I've been reading Fortune a little bit recently and there is some great stuff on it like this story about how MS is threatened by web apps

By the way I'm not a Microsoft hater just someone who believes that the Open Source movement is one of the only examples of a Utopian ideal that has been successfully implemented.
