@bjoern @ghost @aral @indie I would argue that their enormous software patent portfolio is, by nature, very hostile to Free Software.

@ghost @aral @indie patents are hostile to software in general, even Bill Gates acknowledged this many years ago. Does Google use their patents against Free Software? I'm not aware of it, they are also a OIN member. Which is no surprise to me, giving the stuff I tried to explain in my previous two toots. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to defend Google or swpats. But as always, it is complex... to complex for 500 chars. 😉
