Good Riddance

In a landmark move that is bound to enthuse open source developers like me, the European union threw out { in every sense of it } a controversial bill to patent software products !
Oh well it is not that the software we wrote is going to be affected but then again if this bill had been passed, he and yours truly might have been in some serious trouble.
On a more comforting note the attempt by the indian government to pass this bill had been crushed quite some ago, thanks to the commies. Now the commies with their "we dont want anything from the ruling government" policy might have opposed this bill, but who cares ? That bill is not going to come into my country atleast !
