Ok, I must admit, I was surprised when I read this morning that (Microsoft / Sun / Novell / Red Hat / Oracle / Apple) announced they were (sueing / acquiring / partnering with / suing and partnering) their longtime (partner / rival / customer / ex-girlfriend) (insert name here) for (patent infringement / OSI compliance / a billion dollars / dinner and a movie). It seems that (the OOXML spec / GPL 3 / the Linux kernel / AJAX / iPod Touch) is (too hard to pronounce / too hard to use / written in Finnish / too little too late / too much too soon). I say lets take all the (licenses / Linux code / lawyers / guns / money) and shove it (into a MySQL database / where the sun don't shine / down the drain / out to the community and call it a Beta version).
