I’ve been meaning to draw something like this for a couple of weeks now. It’s a little late, but I finally got around to it.
Here’s your license agreement for this image: take it and post it wherever you’d like on this big, wide internet. Just leave the attribution there on the left side (next to Bill Gates, appropriately enough since it’s a claim of intellectual property). If you’d like a high-res version of this, we can make other arrangement$. The original has already been spoken for.
For those not in the know, a couple of weeks ago Steve Ballmer essentially threatened the emerging Asian economies by saying that if they use Linux, they’ll get sued for the patent infringements in it. Microsoft has since backpedaled, saying SOMEONE might sue them, but not US… obviously they’re just looking for a better threat with which to extort potential Linux users.
I’m glad I get to draw pictures about this crap instead of having to actually respond to it in an official capacity.
