Yes. It looks like *you* aren't. :-p

Yes, the Ms-PL and Ms-RL are recognized as open-source by the OSI. The Ms-PL
is basically a BSD-style license. The Ms-RL is more GPL-style, but
GPL-incompatible.

Anyway, didn't Suse/Novell sign a deal with Microsoft? I don't know or
care about the details...

The detail you do care about is that it doesn't change the license under which
openSUSE can acquire the Microsoft fonts.
