Software patents are very dangerous. I forgot where I read this, but it has been written that any non-trivial piece of software violates at least one patent. The way the U.S. patent system "works" is just horrible. If a company with a large patent portfolio wanted to they could have a field day with open source. Open source is even more vulnerable because of its openness.
Linux is dead. Thanks for playing.
