   Redmond, Washington, Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Microsoft Corp.'s
Windows operating-system chief, Jim Allchin, says that freely
distributed software code
   such as rival Linux could stifle innovation and that legislators
need to understand the threat.

   The result will be the demise of both intellectual property rights
and the incentive to spend on research and development, he said
yesterday, after the
   company previewed its latest version of Windows. Microsoft has told
U.S. lawmakers of its concern while discussing protection of
intellectual property
If you wish to strive for peace of soul then believe;
if you wish to be a devotee of truth, then inquire.
