If people can't stay on subject, maybe it's time to lock this thread... or move it to Chit-Chat.

Anyway, it might be wise for EU residents to have a look at the websites, especially at http://www.nosoftwarepatents.com" target="_blank . If you agree that software patents could be a problem, it would be a real help if you placed a banner with a link in your sig in the forums you're in or on your homepage. The more people know about this, the more pressure will be on the european parliament to inform themselves before voting. ;)

Btw. if you are still looking for big software projects that are concerned about software patents in the EU, have a look at http://www.mysql.com/" target="_blank . There's a link in the lower right corner. A bigger link is on http://www.mysql.de" target="_blank .
