What would be really nice is a main distro that ships with all applications with software patents only for European users.
I don't care for software patents because it's not a concern for me (at least for now), so why should I have to go to pains just because americans have them?
Some years ago there was that problem with criptographic algorithms export and most affected software had two versions: one for american users and other for international users. Why can't this be done in Europe also?
If enough europeans rely on patented software there will be more incentive in Europe to fight software patents.
