Have a look at IBM's patent server, www.patents.ibm.com, and look up patent number Des. 277857. Apparently CBM has a patent on the looks of the CBM-500/600/700 and PET 8xxx-SK machines... More of Commodore's patents can be found by doing an advanced search for "Commodore" in the Assignee field. I was really looking for the patent Commodore allegedly held on something to do with backing store in window systems, but I found this first. -Olaf. -- ___ Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert rhialto(at)mbfys-dot-kun.nl "I would be dead in \X/ a week if I didn't do /something/.
