Lawyers Once Again Nipping At Microsofts Heels

Microsoft is once more under the gun as a case in Iowa gets under way in which the “bolting” of Internet Explorer to the Windows Operating System is being blamed for “guming up users computers” and having “drained memory, decreased speed and an increased incidence of security breaches and bugs”.

Forbes: “The plaintiff lawyers contend that Iowan customers of Microsoft are entitled to as much as $329 million in damages as compensation for Microsoft overcharges between May 1994 and June 2006. The lawyers are also seeking compensation for the time people have had to spend repairing security breaches–a figure that they put at a minimum of $50 million.”
