I guess someday someone will take it to court, and we'll find out. Going on 5 years now.

they are probably settling for pennies. then when they get enough of these settlements, they will go after Google's data centers and a few server manufacturers.

That they're competing with Apple for consumer, and Google for online, and are holding their position in the enterprise, and never have been nor intend to be a free server OS, so they don't compete in that space.
