Unix and Vaxes have been around for about twenty years and multi

Micros~1 has suddenly decided they own.

Notice how he refers to 'most operating system' not being able to
multitask. Most Windows systems not being able to multitask that is.

"The present invention provides improved methods and arrangements for
use in multiple user computing environments"

As usual they co-opt a standard methodology and pollute it enough with
feetures so as to claim ownership. Lying crooked bastards - all of them.

"Certain solutions, such as, for example, the "Identity Manager"
available in Microsoft Outlook Express .." - *SNORT*

They're obviously relying on the Patent examiner being as dumb as a door

personalized work space)
