Re: idea/new feature

well, you already pay similar royalties on practically everything else in a
PC. scsi, ethernet, mpeg, most of the core logic, processor busses, etc,
etc, etc. Everything is patented, everything has a charge somewhere. I
thought it was really funny the way people went into a tizzy over the idea
of paying a royalty for 1394/firewire IP as well. I guess people don't mind
paying for IP if they don't know they're paying for it. Sure makes them
look dumb from my perspective....
