Amiga & AROS A few weeks ago, Novell and Red Hat jointly fended off a patent infringement suit thrown their way by a patent troll. The patent in question more or less came down to the concept of virtual desktops - and thanks to Groklaw, several people helped in finding cases of prior art. The most interesting one of all? A carefully restored and working Amiga 1000 demonstrated to the judge and jury.

Really cool that the Amiga has saved the day. AmigaOS is still one of the most advanced pieces of software out there ... sad really, because it is 26 years old.

Edit: They now work. When will we able to edit the title?
