For those not aware of which patent claim:
It's actually 22 Pages and contains 43 separate claims. I must say
I'm a little troubled here.
Somebody already had a lawyer going over it? Boston seems to be a
great place to find somebody
Educated for such task :)
- From my very limited brain leaks, that they took specific picks of
the class library, but including System.Windows.Forms... So I'd guess
GTK# is most affected if at all, since they wrap around and map
winforms functions to GTK. Meaning, I'm not really sure that this
patent really interferes, but lawyers have to see to it, of cause.
I'll try to run the specified classes against any implemented
