The reality of software patents, from a pseudonymous employee in Microsoft's future planning think-tank:
Right now anything you make violates someone's software patent. Nothing you do will not violate something someone holds. ... MS has a huge legal team that will do an evaluation before something is released to see what the predicted cost of infringement will be. I've never seen a number that reads 0 from that prediction, even for the smallest of features.
Nice Win32 front-end for DVDAuthor, amongst others.
With cross-origin support and a HttpRequest module for workers (where XmlHttpRequest isn't available).
cmd.exe by default, but will work with any other shell. Copy and paste that doesn't suck!
Hooray! I can't wait.
