No licensing agreement between Microsoft and Ubuntu (Download Squad)

Jun 19th 2007 6:29PM I'm glad they didn't cave. This is important, because the patent peace deals hurt the development communities. Even though Ubuntu is a more end user focused distribution, they rely on the open source community, including their own part of it. Many open source developers don't want their hard work beholden to Microsoft, and will contribute to distros that won't sign patent peace deals. Canonical is willing to work with Microsoft on interoperability, but not at the price of the community that helped them get where they are.
