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.

If remembered for nothing else, this is probably the proudest moment for the Amiga. Validation to all those people who have owned and supported the Amiga, and securing its rightful place in history.

I hope more patent trolls can be shut down using the Amiga as prior art.

Well done to the original Amiga designers, you got it right first time ;)
