Your article might have at least mentioned the general nastiness of
Software Patents and maybe included a link to the
The League for Programming Freedom's Against Software Patents
BTW, why does the body of my posting to the forum show up on the article
page as a "1"?
Bill Gates 1991 Challenges and Strategy Memo
The funny thing is that almost every other major vendor, except
Microsoft, have joined a scheme to share and grant license to use
contributed patented technology. It's called the General Public
License, and almost every other major vendor, except Microsoft, have
contributed to Linux under a patent exchange/license scheme similar
to that Bill Gates described in 1991.
I should update my safer with Linux article
to include all the recent IP case Microsoft have lost.

See ya at Linuxshow IRC.
