Microsoft has now been sued, after letting PC makers certify their computers as "Windows Vista Capable" for new purchasers -- only to find out that most of Vista's advertised features don't actually work on some of those machines. Instead, to be labeled as Vista Capable, the machines just had to reach a bare minimum of feature support -- much less than what many people were led to believe by the "Vista Capable" certification. While Microsoft may have followed the letter of the law in the way this was pitched, it still makes for an extremely poor marketing strategy, because the only thing it's likely to do is piss off a lot of people who wanted to buy Microsoft's latest operating system and now can't.
