Microsoft has settled down with Lindows (now called Linspire).
The exact terms of the settlement remain confidential, but a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing revealed that Microsoft paid twenty million USD for the Lindows domain.
SillyDog701 members might recall that Microsoft demanded the domain name MikeRoweSoft.com from a 17-year-old boy called Mike Rowe. Microsoft's lawyers, of course, wrote Mike Rowe strong worded letters demanding the handing over of the domain name. Microsoft said, "MikeRoweSoft.com" is theirs.

I have records of the MikeRoweSoft in AntBlog701 in following entries.
And what did Mike Rowe receive for reimbursement?
Lindows is a Linux based operating system that aims to run Windows application smoothly.
