The article is based on flawed logic
What if Google didn't just want patents but acquired Motorola to manufacturer some phones! Is this so implausible?

This patents nonsense is one of the reasons the USA will sink into oblivion and the East will be the new force.
Having software patents is just as daft as patenting novels. Imagine if Dan Brown obtained a patent on 'The Divinci Code' and then sued every other novelist who wrote a similar yarn.
In a sane legal system you copyright your software and anyone else can reverse engineer it which leads to innovation and inter-operability.
I'm running Vista 64bit on an Acer 7720 laptop.
My only issue with Vista was jitter when playing audio and placing any kind of load.
SP1 installed in 30 minutes - 2 reboots (1 obligitory and 1 for luck) and the system feels a lot faster and more responsive. The great thing is I can't cause any jitter on my audio - and I've tried!
