"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.

"...Excuse me if I like to play MP3s, view WMVs correctly, use Windows fonts, use my video card at all its potential, open DOCs reliably and so on. "
OK , I'm with you,but what Novell did specifically to improve your Linux experience regarding mp3, MS Word *.doc document format and with your video card.NOTHING!!!

You should try Vector Linux 5.8 or DreamLinux-Multimedia or PSLinuxOS.
