Ubuntu talks about Apple and Microsoft challenge

Mark Shuttleworth, the founder of Ubuntu, talks why it may finally be time for Linux to out-innovate Apple and Microsoft on desktop computers. Here's a snip from the interview:
Q: So are you saying that if Microsoft finds a way it’s going to be hard for Linux stay as a free piece of software?

A: Microsoft is going to claim that deploying Linux anywhere, unless you pay Microsoft a patent fee, is a violation of their patent and they haven’t proved that yet. But they certainly seem to be positioning themselves in such a way that they could do so.
