It will ask for more details and what this can lead to Frugalware. Many
big companies (Google, IBM, Red Hat, Philips to name a few) are
affiliated with this organization is certainly no accident. This is only
my opinion of course ;-)

>>
>> We have done several new things to keep Linux open and free since we last
>> communicated.  First, in conjunction with the Software Freedom Law Center
>> and the Linux Foundation, we created "Linux Defenders" wherein we have made
>> it more difficult to receive software patents and keep "bad" patents.  We
>> have also neutralized patent threats to the Linux community by acquiring
>> patents, related to Linux, and taking them away from those who would use
>> them to attack the Linux community.  I have taken the liberty to attach two
>> testimonials that speak to our activity in this area.
>>
>> We are succeeding in putting a patent "no fly zone" around the OIN
>> community and would be pleased to have Frugalware join our growing
>> community (see current roster) and benefit from being an OIN licensee.
>> Licensees receive a free license to OIN's extensive portfolio (200+ patents
>> and applications) and a free license to the Linux System patents of the
>> others who join OIN.  If you would like to refresh your knowledge of OIN,

>> Thank you for your consideration and I hope you will reconsider us.
