Legal As most of you will know, Microsoft is currently involved in a class-action lawsuit about the company possibly misleading its customers about which computers could run Windows Vista. The story goes that when Microsoft delayed Windows Vista they allowed computers makers to label existing stock as "Vista Capable", even though these computers could only run the basic, Aero Glass-less version of Vista. The most recent development is that Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer will be questioned under oath.

Well there are kickbacks for a Microsoft OEM, they get rolls of the licenses for dirt cheap. And without getting the deal on those licenses I guess they would go out of buisiness? Just a guess though since I wasn't high up in the chain. Just a side note though, the min specs for Vista is 512MB of ram but stickers were put on 256MB also.
