Microsoft wants to freeze the Vista incapable lawsuit
section: windows, for your questions: KezNews forum, 11.3.2008 [11 March
Never mind that those PC consumers who bought "Vista Capable" machines are
likely better off sticking with Windows XP instead of "upgrading" to
Vista, seeing as how Vista has turned out to be even more of a pig on
qualudes than all prior versions of Windows. The Vole probably won't be
arguing that, but even if it did, that wouldn't let it off the hook for
having misled customers who expected that "Vista Capable" actually meant
"Vista Ready" when they coughed up the readies.
US District Judge Marsha Pechman granted the lawsuit class action status
two weeks ago. Microsoft filed a petition to appeal that ruling with the
Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday, a day after it filed a motion
before Judge Pechman to stay the lawsuit pending its appeal.
