I agree whole-heartedly. The whole point of patents is to protect an inventor while he is trying to bring a product to market. These guys patented their idea in the 90's, so where is the product? No product, no patent in my mind. I'm sick of people who do nothing but think up ideas and then patent them knowing that inevitably someone else will actually want to implement them and then they can get paid for doing absolutely nothing. People like that stagnate progress. If these guys had a competing product that made use of the tiles, I could see their point. But since they don't, I hope Microsoft uses its excess billions to bury them.
