- "Novell have taken full advantage of this deal", not the community.
- "Novell made a _business_ deal with Microsoft that covers several things, one of them being customer patent protection". The patent protection is for the customers of Novell, not for the users of openSUSE. Can you say what are the patents of Microsoft that Linux is violating? Why make a deal with a company whose CEO (Ballmer) says that Linux is like a cancer in relation with the intellectual property. Do you think that software patents are good?
