But wait... isn't there a wealth of prior art? I don't understand the claim. So he made a system that connects through TCP/IP and returns the results of a software service on the Internet (web). Uh, I thought that was what browsers did (e.g. Mosaic). That's also what credit companies have done for years and years. I'm just a young pup-- you all start talking about patents and lawyers and I head for the skatepark... this one doesn't make sense though. And isn't his operating system patent just like WIMP (was that what it was called?) that let's you run windows apps on Linux? or at best JAVA? Write Once Run Anywhere? Did I miss the joke? I was laughing when I read it.... <g/> Jeff Rafter Defined Systems http://www.defined.net XML Development and Developer Web Hosting
