Definitely nice to hear directly from Mark Shuttleworth that Ubuntu is not presently negotiating with Microsoft. It does seem that Microsoft is trying to strong arm Linux distributions at present and Mark goes on to say that the threat of them NOT suing is not enough.

I also appreciated the fact that later on in his article he goes on to say that if Microsoft (or any other closed source vendors really) want to bring something to the table of value and/or change their attitudes that Ubuntu could partner with anyone. It seems to be a very “open” approach and not just anti-Microsoft rhetoric. Great job Mark!
