Just because Novell signed a deal w/ MS, it does not affect all of free software. I really don't see how anything is different now, than before the Novell/MS agreement. It was GPL before and free w/o any Microsoft "IP" worries, it should still be the same. Novell cannot speak for all of the coders around the globe who write most of the software that Novell then simply (re)distributes. They are just another linux distro.
