I wasn't aware. I hadn't read your mail when I wrote mine.  I started
to read it, but your summary was more useful.  As usual claims are so
broad (they claim a computer, not merely a BIOS, a whatchdog, some
circuit or a motherboard), so broad you can't even buy a CPU, DIMMS and their
motherboard and build a PC unless you comply with some license by
them, and who would buy a motherboard and not build a PC with it ?. I
guess they give you a license for the patent when you buy their
motherboard, but then under what terms ? Don't take it as legal advice,
IANAL, I guess any judge would narrow the claims to the inventive
step or something, just laughing at the tipically silly language.

But of course you meant the description, not the claims. 

Thank you.
