Legal This week's 'big' news on OSNews was about software patents. You know, those things that say you cannot stack four pixels on top of one another unless you pay money to the guy who invented four-pixel-stacks (or the guy who bought the guy who invented four-pixel-stacks). A company called IP Innovation, LLC, has sued Novell and Red Hat for infringement of the company's IP portfolio. Software patents are of course generally completely ridiculous, so I will not focus on that here. I want to focus on something else.

Me, my mother, my uncle Josip, couple of my coworkers here at McDonnalds and five of my girlfriends would like to score you down, but it doesn't work. Why not? Will this feature be available in the next version of OSNEWS?

Thanks, it is very funny to read your posts!

It would be so awesome if osnews permitted one to mod down an osn staff memebr like Thom Holwerda, I think his posts would be lik -30 everytime, since he always has such a bad, and biased view on the matters that are happening.
