So let me get this straight -- Novell and Redhat are being sued over a patent some mangy IP shop bought that originated at Xerox PARC (I suppose Rooms?). And the patent is about making the same window show up in multiple workspaces?
Em, wow. Crawl back under your rock until you can make it *really* interesting... Next.
And note to Steve Ballmer: stop being such a wuss. You're really just appearing pretty sad these days. Can't you get a ride in space or something?
