Do you believe that Linux violates Microsoft patents?

As has previously been reported here and elsewhere, ever since Microsoft and Novell signed the patent cross-licensing deal, Microsoft have been making noises that Linux violates Microsoft patents.

Well, now a web site called Show Us The Code have asked Microsoft to do exactly that; in a move reminiscent of the SCO/IBM tussle, Linux advocates have demanded that Microsoft show the patents and infringing code.

Show Us The Code are asking for anyone who has written code for Linux or any company that feels threatened by the possibility of a Microsoft lawsuit of Linux patent violations to support the request that Microsoft disclose the location of any and all Linux code that infringes Microsoft patents, so that Linux programmers can remove the infringing code.
