Petition Against Software Patents Petition

If you don't know why software patents are bad, consider this: Microsoft just applied for a patent on a "task list". You a to-do list stored on a computer. Let me mention that one of the prerequisites for getting a software patent is "nonobviousness"...want to geuss whether anybody else has ever had an idea for a computerized to-do list?
