Legal It's court time again, people. "Symantec filed a lawsuit in Seattle today alleging Microsoft committed a host of business misdeeds, including misappropriating trade secrets and violating a contract that covered code used in part of the coming Windows Vista operating system. The suit, filed in US District Court for the Western District of Washington, relates to a contract between Microsoft and Veritas, which merged into Symantec last year, dating to 1996."

Makes you wonder...

It makes you wonder if Vista will ever be released.

Has another major piece of software ever had so many delays?

If Symantec's wish is granted, how will this affect Microsoft's reputation?

Or is it too late, the damage is done?

Duke nukem forever doesn't count. :-)

Uhm, pretty much every game Blizzard has ever released? Mind you, they are always successful - but that doesn't make up for the fact their project managers don't seem to know how to manage a time schedule.

Dont forget about the constant delays with the patches either. Blizzard has way bigger issues than just project management.
