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.

You want to know what is sad is that people like Miguel created gnome and contributed to the success of linux they are on board with Linux and now some foundation is attempting to stiffle the growth of a company which they now endorse. Blocking the Linux userland when Nat and miguel gave us Gnome, evolution, part of the reason that XGL exits and this is how the FSF pays them back!
