I just read through some of these patents and they are a perfect example of why the patents in the IT industry are f**ked up!
For example "6,175,789 (16 January, 2001) Vehicle computer system with open platform architecture" - where the hell is the invention here?

Just makes me so angry!

# 5,758,352 (26 May, 1998) Common name space for long and short filenames

Are both patent implemented within the Linux Kernel under the VFAT filesystem
