You can’t give that away!

Just a quick note to get the word out on Trend Micro and their newly adopted “let’s sue our customers” going out of business strategy. Being a long-time user of ClamAV on various Windows boxen, I’m taking this a little personally. I have to say I’m surprised Trend Micro’s patent claim hasn’t been challenged before. Looks like the big anti-virus players just paid up at the first sign of trouble. The graphic offered by the Scriptum Libre folks is just a bit too hideous, so I hope their banner will suffice.medium size scriptum libre

About iamacat
Professional writer and multimedia artist. Having studied Japanese and other non-roman alphabet using languages, I appreciate the particular frustrations of language learners in the computer world. I enjoy helping people get their multilingualization going, no matter what operating system or desktop environment they happen to be in. Being an open source enthusiast, I push uim and anthy without reservation in *nix environments. Although lately, ibus has made things easy in modern Linux distributions, to the point of making much of these old posts moot.
