Legal Internet search leader Google is trying to convince federal and state authorities that Microsoft's Vista operating system is stifling competition as the high-tech heavyweights wrestle for the allegiance of personal computer users. In a 49-page document filed April 18 with the U.S. Justice Department and state attorneys general, Google alleged that the latest version of Microsoft's Windows operating system impairs the performance of 'desktop search' programs that find data stored on a computer's hard drive. Besides bogging down competing programs, Google alleged Microsoft had made it too complicated to turn off the desktop search feature built into Vista.

GDS still runs just fine on Vista, according to reports. (If you wish to deny this, then we can both install and test it before continuing an argument).

They added some additional load to the machine... almost anything could have broken GDS for the same reason. They added a couple text boxes to interface into the search system. As a side effect, this makes GDS less desirable. I wouldn't call this deliberate. What's your definition of deliberate?
