Absolutely ridiculous. If you really want to *LEARN* something about Redhat 
and patents in general why waste your time reading a garbage site like BN? 
Anyone with any brains would find accurate unbiased information from a site 
that's more interested in actual facts then a crap site like BN that's 
primarily interested in a twisted political agenda.

So you get your "knowledge and facts" from BN.... that says more about you 
than you know.
