Hello All,

I am in the process of starting up my own Software Company, and I want to create something that can compete with Office 2000, but I am worried that once I get it made that Microsoft will turn around and sue me for some bizarre patent infringement (Like font size or something ;) ) So my question to the fools on this board is this: where can I find out what patents Microsoft, or any other company has? And how safe would I be, legally, if I made something that could compete with Office 2000?
