...and even if microsoft keeps buying software pattents greedily, it won't be able to rob the world off all the great ideas, which it keeps stealing from all the others (mac and linux)...

remember how microsoft stole all its basic gui ideas from mac... how it ripped everything from mac for vista too? They are the ones to be sued for pattents.
They are the greatest software chriminals.

you can't buy freedom with money in the world of ideas. Not in europe.

Don't count your chickens yet, they could still appeal.  Also they have yet to work out the details of how much they will charge for access the source code for various protocols etc.... I can see them spinning this out for longer.  Of course the EU courts could slap another daily fine on them, which they would further appeal against etc....
