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."

Thanks, that clears the NVIDIA issue for now.

Ubuntu will also be shipping ATI's proprietary display drivers.

I think it works in a simular way but is the kernel module source code licensed under GPL or compatable?

Doesn't look like it to me:
