Legal "A federal judge has dismissed a year-old lawsuit against Microsoft over alleged antitrust violations for the 'downgrade' rules it set for Windows Vista and XP. The order issued Monday by US District Court Judge Marsha Pechman put an end to the lawsuit filed by Emma Alvarado in February 2009. In her original complaint, the Los Angeles resident accused Microsoft of coercing computer makers into forcing consumers who wanted to run Windows XP to first buy Windows Vista, or later, Windows 7, before they were allowed to downgrade to XP."

True.

Now Mac OS Snow Leopard (10.6) is out, it's very hard to find the older Mac OS Leopard (10.5).

Some people can't use Snow Leopard, particularly if they've got non-Intel Macs.

The only way to get it, it seems, is to pay over-the-odd to Amazon sellers who still have stock, and some are charging $230 to $270!
