Interesting.  I think these issues are actually *more* important than the
technology and therefore very relevant.  I also think it is in E's best interest
to have these issue addressed head on and not privately.  Having ghosts in the
closet aren't a good thing for an "Open" project :)

That said you may have different feelings because you are one of the patent
holders.  I can appreciate this but I do think it should be discussed publicly.
If you think it should be off the list maybe we should have a
general@erights.org???

Linux is kind of like UNIX but it isn't as expensive, isn't fragmented across
multiple vendor, doesn't restrict your Freedom, and is just infinitely more
pleasant.
