Man, that's the USA for you, give someone/company a reason to sue and they'll take anything they can get.

Watch Bill Gates cut them a personal check

Some part of Word violates a patent somebody else holds. Judge told MS not to sell word anymore because of this infringement. An article I read said that the patent being violated is actually rather vague, but a judge decided it's being infringed...whatever.

Microsoft and Bill Gates has made a living off of infringing and reverse engineering others works. Its about time someone is making them pay. Hell they got hundreds of thousands of engineers and still won't put out a version of Vista that's trouble free. That's because they make more money selling the consumer upgraded versions instead of making a version that works to begin with.

It's called Windows 7......Essentially it's Vista w/o the bugs, more stable, and requires less hardware.

Mach 5 razor is cheap...but you have to buy the $15 cartridges that corrode into dullness, so you gotta buy more. Thats the American way!
