Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth is trying to entice OpenSUSE developers to join Ubuntu. "Novell's decision to go to great lengths to circumvent the patent framework clearly articulated in the GPL has sent shockwaves through the community. If you are an OpenSUSE developer who is concerned about the long term consequences of this pact, you may be interested in some of the events happening next week as part of the Ubuntu Open Week."

I'm a Mac user also, and it's true that this articles threads should not be used to debate the GPL; However, as a Mac user you SHOULD be concerned about the GPL. A large part of the OS that all Mac users have come to love is Open source software and issues like which OSS license to use are very much important to the improvement and longevity of the OS.
