"Microsoft has finally issued a patch for a notorious bug in the Tablet PC edition of Windows XP.

The bug is a memory leak in the default digitizer that ships with the system, and has been irking users for over a year. The digitizer process gradually ate up all available system memory, grinding the machine to a halt, and necessitating a reboot.

Microsoft had failed to acknowledge the issue at all throughout 2004, forcing users to cobble together a batch file which killed and restarted the leaky process. After coverage here at The Register in January, Microsoft acknowledged the bug but didn't promise when a fix would be issued."

A Linux distro should have swooped in and grabbed a few new customers with a distro for Tablet PCs

Said distro would have patched said leak in about three hours too. If it made it out of testing in the first place.
