    Symantec claims Microsoft is wrongfully using its Veritas storage technology in the next version of Windows. Symantec has asked a U.S. court to order a halt to the development of Windows Vista, claiming that its rival is wrongfully incorporating Veritas storage technology into its next-generation OS.

    Why Vista? for the good of intel>????

    Just improve XP and eat less system resource! I guess 2000 was more stable and less resource hungry.

    Microsoft again on their routine job of stealing. Infact was microsoft ever original. First they did it to mac . And then Lotsa others. Now Norton.
    Think this way!
    How microsoft works!
    First a company steals from another equal rival company and makes money on that concept.Then they improve on it by again stealing from small companies and adding to the original product . This hurts the rival company who had originally developed the product becuse the stealing company has made its product inferior in comparision. Now the first company who has stolen from 3 companies continues stealing and imroving until a monopoly is created. Now with this monopoly it openly starts stealing the patents.
    Yes the owner of the Stealing company is also called Bill Gates !World's richest man!
    Wonder why do they fret when someone pirates their product!

    After reading this topic i think it is true that people are jealous of successful people ...... well lets see if my memory is correct wasn't it a software called windows 95 made by a "thief" that took the world with storm and people like the one's posting here started their love for computers ........

    Know Your Roots

    good old billy boy opened the gates to the future u are living today ....... jealousy will lead you no where it dont matter whether you call him a thief he is the richest man in the world he has made a product that the entire world uses and the genius jobs almost was losing his job until a certain iPod came along....... guyz respect your peers !!!

    I believe I saw the word Symantec at the begging of the thread. It seems to have disappeared somewhere.
    This will be a bad news for MS and those waiting for Vista eagerly. Many people have pinned their hopes on Vista that they will be provided a stable and secure system. With so many hurdles and delays cropping up there are many question marks being raised on when will Vista be released and whether it will be what it was promised to be.
