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 reality is in computing *most* of the time if you have a problem, it's poor design. If certain versions of certain software were cars, we'd be steering with rope..... and the mechanics would blame us for not whacking our hands against the wall to toughen them up. I've used many systems, so I know good design can happen.
