Picked this up from Karan’s post  and was quite glad to read it. FAT has been around fro ages and Microsoft trying to patent it does not fit in the common sense mode thinking that most of us are use to (ya right!). Its the same as some bright people in USA tried to patent some of the Ayurvedic medicines that have been practises in India for the past five thousand years, which identify a person’s constitution and treats the person with diet, exercise, meditation, herbs, massage, sun, and breathing to bring harmony to the physical, mental, and spiritual health of the individual.
