"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.
