    Default Microsoft patents the command "sudo"....

    Microsoft brevetta il comando "sudo"? - Hardware Upgrade - Il sito italiano sulla tecnologia - www.hwupgrade.it

    The U.S. Patent Office has granted Microsoft a patent that describes a method for executing commands with administrator privileges. The paper raised a rather heated controversy since it was considered by many to be a simple restatement of the command "sudo" well known in the Unix environment, designed in 1980 by members of the Department of Computer Sience at the State University of New York at Buffalo.

    It seems MS is looking to register commands like Sudo, bing and may get few more in near future.
