New Microsoft Invention [07 May 2004|08:02am]
[ mood | amused ]

(Is this also the same patent people were talking about a few months back with Microsoft attempting to patent workspace-switching? That seems to be what part of this description is referring to.)

Subject: Sharing the Family PC is Patent-Pending

While Mainframe and Unix users are unlikely to find it novel that
Windows XP allows several family members to share a PC while enabling
each to have personalized settings and folders, that's not stopping
Microsoft from seeking a patent for 'Methods and arrangements for
providing multiple concurrent desktops and workspaces in a shared
computing environment,' the USPTO disclosed Thursday.

Link to the patent application.

Very funny, and even a little insightful:

Pat Metheny's comments on Kenny G.

"Mr. G" heh.
