Parent article: IBM's patent pledge
Well, software patents are probably the biggest threat to open source software and the open source community should therefore fight it at all cost.
IBM still supports software patents. I'm not that conserned about IBM suing any open source developers, but IBM is not the only company with software patents. There's a certain company located in Redmond that isn't quite as big an open source fan as IBM is.
It might be well-meant gesture from IBM, but it is of little use in reality.
