That's another thing I came across while testing out
the OpenSuSE 10.0: there was a package available
in the online update window which lured me with the

What actually happened was that
it displayed a license agreement, after which
behind the scenes it merrily proceeded to a
sourceforge website where Microsoft's font packages
were mirrored, downloaded them and configured the
font server to use them.
All very neat, but not really what
we should be spending our scarce-as-it-is
open-source time on...
