I'm glad to see you say that. I couldn't make sense of what this guy was trying to say.

Btw, what is a patent trap.

It's when they add something to said program, or in this case the linux kernel that will irrevocably change it for the better, then they go and patent that implementation. And will then proceed to sue the crap out of anyone using said code in their code. Microsoft has done this many times. I wish I could find the sources I read these about. But they're so old that I can't find them on the net anymore.
