It is reported that Microsoft recently obtained patent for “Operating System Shutdown“. In simpler words, Microsoft now holds the intellectual property rights for ‘shutting down an operating system’.

Sounds crazy isn’t it? But before criticizing Microsoft, think about the patent system that made this happen in the first place. Unbelievable.

Abstract of the Patent

A user interface and scheme is provided for facilitating shutting down an operating system. Aspects include the operating system receiving a command to initiate shut down, and automatically terminating graphical user interface (GUI) applications that delay shut down which do not have top level windows. Also, aspects provide a user, through a graphical user interface, the ability to automatically terminate all running applications in response to determining that a running GUI application has a top level window.
