The way to avoid being sued by microsoft (or at least sucessfully sued) is
not to violate microsoft Copyrights, Trademarks or Patents. (we have to be
especially carefull what with large chunks of windows out there in the form
of the leaked NT4 and 2000 source dumps)
And not to use any information obtained from microsoft under NDA.
Although, being Microsoft, just suing us (regardless of whether they have a
case or not) could be enough to seriously damage the project :( )
