Not Obvious?

Just seen this patent for a modular operating system filed in June'05 by Microsoft.

Obviously it's US centric - but I have to ask, having read it and thinking back to where we were in 2005, where is the non obvious bit?

Looks to me like a combination of pre-existing ideas and I can't find a single thing which is new.

Help please, can someone point it out!
