Your article might have at least mentioned the general nastiness of
Software Patents and maybe included a link to the  
The League for Programming Freedom's Against Software Patents 

BTW, why does the body of my posting to the forum show up on the article
page as a "1"?
Bill Gates 1991 Challenges and Strategy Memo
    The funny thing is that almost every other major vendor, except
    Microsoft, have joined a scheme to share and grant license to use
    contributed patented technology. It's called the General Public
    License, and almost every other major vendor, except Microsoft, have
    contributed to Linux under a patent exchange/license scheme similar
    to that Bill Gates described in 1991.

I should update my safer with Linux article
to include all the recent IP case Microsoft have lost.
