_I_ don't have any 'code dependency' on Linux, and IMHO the SCO issue is 
different. Any developer can be sued by any other developer for patent and 
copyright infringements.
This case is that hypothetically, if IBM builds a commercial product with 
Hibernate in there somewhere, Microsoft can (AFAIU) sue IBM on behalf of the 
Hibernate folks, even though no Microsoft code/copyright/patent is involved. 
Absurd? Yes of course, but possible.

The FSF agenda is to drive all development into OSS, by forcing the choice of 
"economical OSS benefits" vs "costly in-house development". And IMO, they 
seems to be doing a pretty good job at that.
