Double Linked List Patented in 2006

        see Slashdot today,

        http://www.patentstorm.us/patents/7028023.html

        Well, well. If this doesn't prove that the United States Patent Office (not 
to mention the clucks at Cochran Freund & Young LLP) are absolutely and 
completely incompetent with regard to issuing software patents.

        Software Patents *must* Die

        
        Just to keep things on-topic, Cochran Freund & Young LLP are going to be 
coming after Suse Novell for extensively using doubly linked lists in most of 
their open sofware... sorry guys, you won't be able to hide under the M$ 
deal.   ;-P

        *strictly tongue in cheek*
