Microsoft "Vista Capable" Lawsuit Won't Be Class Action

Last week, a U.S. federal court judge denied class action status to the Microsoft “Vista Capable” lawsuit, on the grounds that “the plaintiffs could not demonstrate that their claims were common to the entire class of consumers who bought computers marked with the ‘Windows Vista Capable’ but without the ‘Premium Ready’ label.”

Judge Marsha Pechman said the plaintiffs could still move forward with their individual suit. If you bought a Vista-capable computer that you didn’t feel was capable as promised, you’ll have to sue Microsoft yourself.
