Novell and Ximian The Free Software Foundation is reviewing Novell's right to sell new versions of Linux operating system software after the open-source community criticized Novell for teaming up with Microsoft. "The community of people wants to do anything they can to interfere with this deal and all deals like it. They have every reason to be deeply concerned that this is the beginning of a significant patent aggression by Microsoft," Eben Moglen, the Foundation's general counsel, said on Friday. Update: The FSF claims this is being hyped.

The Free Software Foundation is protecting the rights of citizens in the information age. The Foundation has no means to enforce anything, but it can and it does protect themselves, their members and their property.

Everybody is free to sell their rights, kidneys and brains too. But please educate yourselves before doing so.

And yeah, you're not using linux, you're running the GPL licensed software on something you have no clue about it.
