slashdot loves poland (poland loves slashdot?)

Indulge me in a little old-fashioned nationalism, okay? Today on Slashdot:

Thanks to the Polish Minister of Science and Information Technology, Wlodzimierz Marcinski, Europe has dropped the current proposal for software patents. He made a special journey to Brussels to withdraw the proposal, basically in protest at the way the patents were being pushed through by the back door. Since the European presidency is about to pass to Luxembourg, this has effectively killed the idea, at least for the immediate future."

Comments include:

  • At least slashdot didn't forget about Poland. :)
  • Thank Poland!
  • It's about time one of the countries in Europe had a government with a spine ... Go POLAND!!!
  • First to break the German's Enigma machine and now this.


Sorry, no new comments on old posts.
