    Although it's quite understandable, I find it quite disheartening that you (and a few other component vendors) have fallen into the Microsoft Office 2007 UI Licensing trap. The license is a load of sh*t and hopefully someone will be able to challenge Microsoft in court. There is a lot of prior art and Microsoft are not in a moral position to punish UI theft. They have even gone to court themselves to prove that such "theft" is a non issue.

    It's VERY nice that they provide guidelines, but they should not be allowed to enforce them in any way, other than by giving seals of approval to those who pay for the review process (just as it works with MS certified applications)
