I'm working on my own letter to the DoJ.  Here are some links I'd recommend
so you can decide for yourself if it is worth your time to comment:

  "So much for SAMBA and other Open Source projects that use Microsoft
   calls. The settlement gives Microsoft the right to effectively kill
   these products."

  "The only hope we have is for a truly enormous grassroots outpouring of
   polite, well reasoned comments that explain why the proposed
   settlement is not in the public interest."

I particularly recommend the second one; the article in LinuxPlanet.  It
provides good information on how to write and send your comments.  There
is a follow-up article at:

It should be obvious where I stand on all of this, but I am encouraging
people to write, not to hold one or another point of view.  The DoJ needs
to know that we are out here and that we are paying attention.
