In case you don't know, Richard Johnson is a volunteer Kubuntu developer.  He 
is an active MOTU.  He is on both the Kubuntu and MOTU councils (these are 
community run entities that help the greater Ubuntu community get stuff 
done).  He leads the entire Kubuntu documentation effort.  He's currently up 
for core-dev.

We kid him about using Vista on IRC, but he devotes countless hours to free 
software development.

random ad hominem attacks on people who are busy actually getting work done?

Personally, I wouldn't run opensuse on a bet, but it's got nothing to do with 
patents or deals.  Does that make me a Microsoft shill too?
