SuSE, openSUSE As reported by Slashdot, debate has risen over ClearType in Linux. OpenSUSE recently disabled this technology, saying "that this feature is covered by several Microsoft patents and should not be activated in any default build of the library". Other websites have picked up on this as well: "The strange thing is though: no matter the fact that Novell and Microsoft are now buddies, openSUSE still has to be concerned about the ClearType patents!"

For a community that has proponents who scream about Microsoft's verbal barbs against Linux, they do a pretty good job of doing Microsoft a favor and do a good deal of the damage themselves.
