I think it's important to keep in mind that Microsoft's products are just as much at risk of patent claims as free software projects are. Software patents threaten the whole industry.
You might think that Microsoft has more money to defend itself, but that doesn't actually help its customers, and that's what this FUD is about—the "undisclosed liability" of having Windows in your server room.
