Summary:
Microsoft has filed a lawsuit against navigation device maker TomTom, claiming that its technology infringes Microsoft-owned patents. Some of the alleged infringement is a result of TomTom's use of Linux technology, Microsoft said. Microsoft has claimed in the past that technology used in the main body of the Linux open source operating system, the 'kernel', infringes patents which it owns. It has not so far tested those claims in court.
