Parent article: Bid to trademark the word 'Linux' rejected (News.com)
I did a search and Windows is definitely registered to M$ as a trademark by IP Australia. Yet all the same arguements apply, it is a term used by traders to sell apples and linux distros and there are many other similar trademarks registered.
I hope the applicant at least asks why this double standard is applied?
