Microsoft Wins Windows XP Downgrade Lawsuit

“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.”
