Slashdot: "Apple Files Patent for Translucent Windows" - I can't see this patent surviving for too long. I need to do a bit more reading because I'm not sure when they introduced translucent windows but I know Windows has been capable of doing it for quite a while. I'm also confident someone will find prior art. During the development of Office 11, A.K.A. Office System, we had a few builds with translucent windows but it didn't make the cut. I'm guessing it was just one of those "cool" features that didn't make the product work any better so why keep it?
