   What OSS does NOT do is to submit patents of the "2+2=4" variety.

How do you know?

   Perhaps it would help if you were also to look at the terms under
   which MS is proposing to "open" some of its stuff.

Might be better if you looked, since two of the three licenses that
MicroSoft has purposed are free software licenses, the Ms-PL and
Ms-CL.  The Ms-RL is infact a `open source' license in the literal
sense (you can look, you can't touch).
