Windows Vista lawsuit loses class-action status

A lawsuit claiming people were fleeced by the way Microsoft Corp. advertised some Windows XP computers as capable of running the new Vista operating system is no longer a class action, a federal judge has ruled.


The lawsuit, certified last February as a class action, argued that Microsoft’s designation of some PCs as “Windows Vista Capable” was misleading because many of those computers were not powerful enough to support all of Vista’s features, including the sleeker “Aero” user interface. http://www.cbc.ca/technology/story/2009/02/19/windows-vista.html
