"A Securities and Exchange Commission filing detailing the
Microsoft-Corel relationship has shed light on the "outstanding
legal issues" that neither side wanted to talk about when the deal
was struck last week."
"The document also describes in some detail the staff resources
Corel would commit to porting .NET services to Linux, although it
stops short of making any such commitment. But you can probably
draw your own conclusions."
"As for the legal settlement, we learn that Corel was on the
defensive rather than the offensive on this one. In section 4 of
the filing, titled Covenant Not to Sue, Microsoft describes three
of its own patents - 5,510,980, 5,287,514 and 5,437,036 - which
cover work in the equation editor, table formatting and
spell/grammar checking respectively."
