Cito un comment di Slashdot:
Abstract The method and system of the present invention provides
an improved technique for replacing, implementing and managing
computer-related assets. A technician accesses the World Wide Web
through a user's computer. The information resident on the
computer, including information regarding the computer and the
user's preferences, are downloaded to a remote storage medium
through the World Wide Web. Once downloaded, all information may
be removed from the user's computer. Subsequently, the technician
accesses another computer such as, for example, a new computer
that has been assigned to the same user. The technician accesses
the World Wide Web through the new computer and downloads the
information previously stored on the remote storage medium. This
information can then be used to install the user's prior
applications, settings and preferences on the new computer.
As the parent noted, as would anybody who actually took the time to
read the patent abstract (which apparently does NOT include the
original poster), this patent is for using the web as a place to
migrate settings and data from one computer to another.
Now, in my opinion, the actual patent is also ridiculous and way too
broad in scope, but not nearly as bad as the picture painted by /.
In altre parole, sembra avere poco a che fare con apt.
