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!

# 5,579,517 (26 November, 1996) Common name space for long and short filenames
# 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

No matter that the methords in question was first implemented by IBM in OS/2 way before 1991.
