Linux IP - New comment on Limited Round-Up, New Souls, and Old Problems

Here's another topic. I am wondering what people in Microsoft think about the IP claims that Balmer is making about Linux.
Balmer says that Linux violates Microsoft's IP. Now the normal thing a company does when it makes that sort of clam is to publish the details, so that users can see if the claim stands, and also so that the developers of the accused software can fix it, if possible.
However, Microsoft is refusing to do this. Instead it's saying, "Linux is violates our IP, and you are in danger of being sued, so you better switch over to Windows or Novell Linux, but you are just going to have to take our word for it."
Do people in Microsoft think this is cricket? Imagine if some other company made the same accusations about Microsoft. Or are microsofties upset that Balmer is pulling this sort of maneuver?
(Off-topic. No doubt worthy of being discussed. Somewhere.)
