Software Patents in Europe

At least the crap at the EC level got blocked, thanks a million to all who worked on this, including the FFII and our representative (my MEP is Rocard, I'm fairly happy to have voted for him !). As Calum pointed out it is nice to see Sun Microsystems lining up with us on this, they are still members of EICTA but dissenting,
excellent ! As for the block on rpmfind.net I simply removed it 2 hours after the results for the vote ;-) (rpmfind.net was down earlier today, changed memory, added 2 sata drives and it broke during the night apparently, the good point is that I now have a 200GB drive for Fedora). Now it's time for me to celebrate !
