Here it is

Quote from the article

In 2003, Microsoft executives sat down to assess what the company should do with all those patents. There were three choices. First, it could do nothing, effectively donating them to the development community. Obviously that "wasn't very attractive in terms of our shareholders," Smith says.

Oh, please. Forget to wear your tinfoil hats today? Who would have guessed that monopolists, as recognized by the EU, Japan, and even the US, could be so callous? You're all just a bunch of freaky Linux zealots! Stay away from from the mushrooms, then go get a haircut and a job! And start wearing shoes for a change!
