LXer: Microsoft tries to patent a crippled baseline OS

Published at LXer:

Microsoft is applying for a patent for an operating system that starts out crippled. You must pay to do things like take the throttle off network speed, disk access, install drivers, install software, and more. Trust me, I rarely even visit Groklaw, even if this is my second consecutive blog entry with a link to a Groklaw article. readers posted the article,A Brave New Modular World, and I had to share it.
