I'm sure IBM, Apple, Novell and Sun would have enough captial and enough 'prior art' to make it work. They'd all get a cut of windows sales and a massive compensation payout for lost earnings
Of course we don't live in fair world and this could never happen but it would be cool if it did. I can't see microsoft lying and threatening their way through so many lawsuits without them ending up seriously out of pocket to the sum of billions in damages eventually.
