Microsoft Wins Windows XP Downgrade Lawsuit

CWmike writes “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 put an end to the lawsuit filed by Emma Alvarado in February 2009. In her original complaint, she 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. The judge rejected Alvarado’s accusations, saying that the plaintiff had not proved Microsoft benefited from the downgrade practices that it created and that OEMs implemented.”
