Evt. ville det være rart hvis nogen med erfaring i patent-lingo lige kiggede
på patentet:

http://appft1.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PG01&s1=20030189597&OS=20030189597&RS=20030189597

Der kunne jo være flere guldkorn gemt i teksten end lige det vi allerede
kigger på...

Det der er mest interessant for os lige nu er vist Claim 1 til og med 25,
jeg har kun skimmet uddybningerne, men de virker unødvendige i forbindelse
med en pressemeddelelse.

Især følgende claims er interessante:

1. Method for presenting multiple virtual desktops in a single graphical
user interface formed on a display of a computer system, the display having
a first periphery and a second periphery, the method comprising: receiving
an indication from a user to preview the multiple virtual desktops; and
displaying multiple panes occupying at least the first periphery of the
display, each pane containing a scaled virtual desktop having dimensions
that are proportionally less than the dimensions of a corresponding
full-size virtual desktop, each scaled virtual desktop being displayed with
one or more scaled application windows if the corresponding full-size
virtual desktop has one or more corresponding application windows that are
active.

6. The method of claim 1, further comprising an act of displaying one or
more quick switch buttons so that the user may select a quick switch button
to switch to a full-size virtual desktop associated with the quick switch
button. 

8. Method for sharing applications across multiple virtual desktops in a
graphical user interface being presented on a display of a computer system,
the method comprising: receiving an indication from a user to share an
application window; and displaying a button representing the application
window in a first virtual desktop in which the application window is
opened, the button being displayed in other virtual desktops besides the
first virtual desktop in which the application window is opened and being
selectable from any virtual desktop to switch from another running
application window to the application window. 

og endelig

14. Method for providing a desktop switcher to switch among multiple virtual
desktops in a graphical user interface being presented on a display of a
computer system, each virtual desktop having a background image that may be
different from the background image of another virtual desktop, the method
comprising: displaying a set of thumbnails, each thumbnail representing a
full-size virtual desktop of the multiple virtual desktops, and each
thumbnail having a background image that corresponds to the background
image of the full-size virtual desktop represented by the thumbnail;
displaying one or more shadows in each thumbnail if the full-size virtual
desktop represented by the thumbnail has one or more application windows
that are opened on the full-size virtual desktop, each shadow being a faint
representation of an application window that is opened on the full-size
virtual desktop; and receiving an indication from a user for switching from
one full-size virtual desktop to another full-size virtual desktop when the
user clicks on a thumbnail from the set of thumbnails. 

- Er der nogen der har tilføjelser, eller er det de her punkter vi skal
arbejde ud fra?
