What if MS descides to patent their drivers-api so that one can't create
anything that can use drivers written for Windows/their api. Then the whole
idea about driver compability is down the drain, right?
Just thought of this as an extension to the FAT patent-problem.

End users can and do get sued, and developers can get sued too. You can
find examples of end-users getting sued if you search around a bit.
We need to formulate a policy as it relates to IP, probably pretty quickly.
