Yeah, I'm sure they use Nokia's patents to go after Ubuntu's MobileOS and
also Jolla's SailfishOS (also Linux based).

It was a brilliant plan, after all:

1.Infect firm by planting a trojan (S.Elop)
2.Make that competitor drop its main threat against WinPhone, the Linux
based MeeGo mobile OS
3.Also drop the legacy SymbianOS.
4. Watch as customers flee the brand, value drops
5. Buy it for pocket change, and get an army of engineers, manufacturing,
agreements and more importantly, patents (IP), to go after other Linux
based threatening enemies of the Windows Monoculture (Ubuntu, Jolla).
