According to the filing, the patent covers a method in which
"information-bearing windows whose contents remain unchanged for a
predetermined period of time become translucent." The translucency would
intensify the longer a window's content remains unchanged, the patent
Translucent / Transparent terminal windows were all the rage a while
back on [flux|black|open]box window managers. I'll admit tailing the
access log in a clear Eterm window set against the root window was l33t
for about a day. But that is just me.
Having windows slowly disappear (the patent) would seem similarly
annoying. My opinion on this patent? There's nothing to see here..
move along. <grin>
