I bet they'll end up taking a cheque from Microsoft and we'll never hear about it again.
Or Microsoft will just buy up the company and it's patents.
Either way, same result.

or Google will buy it and Microsoft will have big time problems. Can't you imagine if someone back up this small company and they win, what left of Microsoft new Metro Crap ? Microsoft put so much small companies out of business that will be their Karma.
