    Default microsoft license on zypper dup

    I keep forgetting to note what microsoft product prompts for a license agreement during a `zypper dup`.
    I think it's a font.

    Why is this included?
    How can I get rid of it?

    To be more clear, I'm wondering why the product is included.
    Is there no alternative that doesn't require a license agreement?

    There is the nouveau agreement.
    But there is also another -- with microsoft's name on it.

    I think that's it.

    Is this associated with fetchmsttfonts?

    Yes.

    That package downloads and installs Microsoft fonts from their server, and therefore needs a (separate) license agreement.
