Announcing .NET 2015 - .NET as Open Source, .NET on Mac and Linux

<< < (7/7)

Suffice it to say, I have personal evidence that you're wrong.  It really depends on the judge, the lawyers, and the day of the week.

Even better, if you didn't have that evidence, the other party would have that evidence instead... No one goes to court thinking they're going to lose, yet half of the people do. Often it's a case of not knowing the rules of the game or understanding the legal aspects, and ... like you said ... sometimes it's just Monday morning.

Anyway, it's all besides the point that Microsoft made this promise is very precise legal wording. From that wording you can conclude that they placed themselves in a corner with their pants down, if their intentions would have been to sue anyone for patent infringement. Their chances to win such a case went down to near zero, unless if you have a drunk judge on Monday morning.
