OK, now this is getting me pissed off. I didn't get pissed when Amazon patented
"1-Click" shopping, I didn't get pissed when LZH was patented, and I was
only mildly ticked off when RamBuys INC pantented information developed as 
part of an open standards organzation,but this has gone too far. Apple Computer
INC was awarded patent #6,188,399 which was for "Systems and methods for 
providing a user with increased flexibility and control over the appearance and
behavior of objects on a user interface". Or more susinctly, "themes".

I think that it's about time that we disallow the patenting of software.
