Linspire (formerly Lindows) as free download
Because of the necessary name change for the operating system Lindows (that is meant to be some kind of symbiosis of Linux and Windows) due to the law suit with the competitor Microsoft into Linspire has the distributor decided to make the current version 4.5 of the product available for a free download for some days. According to the website is a PC with at least 800 MHz clock and 128 MByte RAM needed to use the software. Further information regarding the necessary conditions can be found under the title link.

Foundation makes Microsoft FAT-Patent dubious
Since December 2003 Microsoft has demanded licence charges for "FAT" (a widely spread file system which is used on flash-memory or on older Windows versions). It is possible because the company has got a patent for this technology.

The Public Patent Foundation has requested at the US Patent Office to check this patent. Obviously the Foundation thinks to prove that parts of the technology existed before Microsoft implemented it. (cg) (Translation: dr)
