Warning 1: "De-commoditize protocols" means that MS tries to sabotage things that are currently free so they can sell them. Warning 2: "The effect of patents and copyright in combatting Linux remains to be investigated" means that MS will try to chill open software by launching groundless litigation against open source software.
