+1

Why would you ask for help in a Windows forum when there is a forum here just for Linux help? Take it where it goes.

Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"

"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"

If you don't want to waste your time downloading, go to Ubuntu's site, and they'll send you the LiveCD/Install Disk for free.

Yeah, just keep in mind it may take quite a while to ship to you.
