So what is the deal with all the software patent stuff I have been hearing about lately? Is there a chance that Linux might no longer be a free system or even worse that it might get shut down? I am just a little confused about all of this.

They're never going to shut down Free Software! :) They'll never be able to turn off the music!

This link has lots more info about software patents:

This is a great article about why software patents, and other intellectual property schemes are completely untenable in the long term:
