Here is what I don't get. Why would any Judge in his right mind say this was ok? This lawsuit is just a massive waste of time and money. If MS has to pay a dime for this I will be pissed!
I agree that sometimes the stickers were placed on machines that should never have run Vista, but the fact is that they do RUN vista, just not well.
My video card (even my last card a nVidia 7300LE) meets the requirements for Crysis, but I will never be able to enable all of the features and still have it run well. This is the same thing. If the computer boots into vista and can run built-in functions of vista...then there was no crime. If people who don't know anything about computers want to buy a "new" computer for as little as they can find, they should at least go talk to a salesman/tech at Best Buy or w/e who will be able to give them a heads-up as to what they are dealing with.
If someone bought a '88 Honda that burns more oil than gas and expect to drag a boat with it, that is fine...it will probably do it...just not very well! If this was brought to court because it couldn't pull a boat...the judge would probably just laugh at him. So, why is this Vista case even being entertained?
My respect for the general population of humans goes down and down.
