Hi, all!

The story of silly patents continues with Microsoft
patenting double-clicks and keep-pressed-for-menu
on the mouse buttons:

<http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=/netahtml/srchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=6,727,830.WKU.&OS=PN/6,727,830&RS=PN/6,727,830>

Very soon, there will be no more window managers
because there will be no more unpatented features
left over.

An optimist thinks that this is the best possible world.
                                 A pessimist fears that this is true.
