Posted on: 10/10/2007 01:05 PM

InfoWorld reports that Steve Ballmer says Red Hat Linux uses unidentified Microsoft intellectual property

Ballmer made the claim, an echo of earlier remarks aimed at the open-source community, during a presentation at a Microsoft event Oct. 4 in London.

"People who use Red Hat, at least with respect to our intellectual property, in a sense have an obligation eventually to compensate us," Ballmer stated, according to news reports and a video of his remarks posted online.
