Papers filed yesterday in the Vista "junk PC" lawsuit reveal that the lawyers suing Microsoft believe that before Windows 7 is launched, Microsoft may roll out a "Windows 7 Capable" scheme, similar to controversial Vista Capable plan for which Microsoft is now being sued. Here are the details, including excerpts from the court filing.
The latest filing is part of the lawsuit against Microsoft for a marketing scheme in which people claim that Microsoft misled consumers into buying the Windows Vista Capable PCs, even though the PCs couldn't run the most important features of Vista. Microsoft has tried to get a judge to freeze the case, and then throw it out of court. In response, lawyers filed papers listing all the reasons why the case should not be frozen.
