The Supreme Court sided with Microsoft Corp. on Monday in a case that restricts the reach of U.S. patents overseas. In a 7-1 decision, the court found that Microsoft is not liable in a patent dispute with AT&T. The decision could impact other lawsuits against Microsoft and save the company billions because of the global scope of its operations.

I like playing around with different distributions. As soon as a new version of gentoo, suse, ubuntu, sabayon or fedora appears I want to try it out. What I'm getting tired of is having to reinstall my system again and again, which has to be done if using beta versions or other cutting edge software (like beryl) which trashes my system. Besides all this I hate dual boot so this is not an option for me. For this reason I wanted to try some virtualisation software to overcome this problem.
