|There was an interesting discussion at todays Linuxshow about prior art by Eric Raymond. Eric was on the show and mentioned that he wrote an article about same system in 1998 but didn't bother to patent any on this as he thought it obvious. The show is available for rehearing just click on lastweeks show http://lxer.com/module/newswire/view/21890/index.html#thread...|

Just remember people MSFT wants to patent sudo.
