So I have seen a bit of the computer world. It would have been interesting if there had been software patents when Microsoft cam out with MS Dos. Somehow, I think DRI might have something to say about Microsoft ripping off the 8 bit version of CP/M.

I still do not know - are you a troll for Microsoft, or are you missing the hole point of Linux? Your statements can be read either way. In any case, you are applying the wrong business model to Linux, and that is where all your predictions fall down. The problem is that the needs of government and the needs of business overlap, but are not identical. You are still trying to fit Linux into the "One size fits all" business model, and it does not fit. Think about that before you try to insult me again.
