I'm a bit curious though why Microsoft would feel the need to patent this.
It's probably not "Microsoft", but some software research/development group in Microsoft. One of the performance metrics used on such group could be "number of patents/year", so they try to patent every idea. Also, the individual researcher/developer might get a bonus for every patent.
