"Additionally, Bilski did deal with software. It really ought to have only dealt with a pure business method, but the Federal Circuit went much farther than necessary and certainly issued an opinion related to software. You see, software is a process and the Bilski case says that such processes must be tied to a computer. This is exactly how software was protected prior to State Street, so when the Federal Circuit resurrects this thinking it has tremendous implications for software and software patents. I recommend that you review the genesis of software protection in case law and you will then quite clearly see exactly why Bilski has enormous impact for software patents."
