Patents and Pigs

Wednesday 18th January 2006

Category: News

First of all, we have a couple of articles regarding patents. Sadly, Microsoft has finally got their FAT patent, although it still seems to be doing nothing with it. Google Talk has also been accused of patent infringement.

Elsewhere on the web, Linus Torvald's comments on GNOME and KDE are still having an effect, as shown by another article on GNOME and KDE. Unfortunately, nobody really seems to be standing up for the smaller packages, such as XFCE.

Finally, a couple of stories from the BBC. First of all, Sony has been told off, and can no longer use XCP and MediaMax on its discs. Last, but by no means least, is an article on fluorescent pigs.
