Recently I posted about how "Windows Vista criticism reaches a crescendo" and today I find out from the New York Times that a lawsuit is brewing. Most interesting of all is that part of the findings are based on internal Microsoft emails. You can even read the emails in a PDF link in the article.
It appears that Microsoft's marketing got one past the engineering group with the labels "Windows Vista Capable". Any one who buys the first generation of anything, whether it be software, hardware or a washing machine, is accepting a certain amount of risk. Is a lawsuit necessary? I think it depends on just how much damage was done, don't you?
