Summary:
Tom Callaway, long time packager for Redhat, is warning that the company cannot include some games in the distribution because of software patents. A patent seems to cover a game where "targets" move across the screen to a predetermined point or line, where the player hits a button/key/mouse click as the target(s) crosses that point or line, and gets points.
