  1. Looks like the battle may be coming to an end:

    "Microsoft Corp. and Lindows Inc. have reached a $20 million settlement in their ongoing trademark feud, with Lindows agreeing to changes its name globally and Microsoft licensing digital media technology."

    When is someone going to pay me $20 Million? I sure could use it to keep up to date with the latest hardware...

    In this case, of course, its Microsoft paying Lindows the $20 million. But in return:

    "Lindows will change its company name and the name of its Linux-based operating system to Linspire."

    Lindows had previously changed the name anyway following initial court rulings against it in the Benelux and other European countries.
