Bill Gates JokeSoftware giant Microsoft has won apple patent rights – not those of its arch-rival Apple computer – but a special variety of fruit tree. Microsoft’s apparent new horticultural interest came after the US Patent Office mistakenly granted it the rights to the “Burchinal Red Delicious” apple. US Plant Patent 14,757 was supposed to be granted to Robert Burchinal of East Wenatchee, Washington, instead.
