No Appeal For "Vista Capable"...Law Suit

Microsoft's latest attempt to derail the "Vista Capable" class-action law suit via another appeal has been stymied:

"In a brief order dated April 21, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Microsoft's request to overturn a decision by U.S. District Court Judge Marsha Pechman in February that granted class-action status to a lawsuit that charges the company deceived consumers in 2006 with its Windows Vista Capable marketing program."

Perhaps the best part about Microsoft's appeal is that it usually means they have submitted internal and/or external documents that will probably be made public.  Those documents tend to be a gold mine of information about the less-than-cozy world of what used to be jokingly referred to as the 'Win-Tel' relationship.

  can i see the source that said microsoft usually submits internal or external documents for appeals that are gold mines of information? this is the first time im hearing of a company releasing information so sensitive.

also, i for one have to side with microsoft on this one with vista capable law suit. vista capable just meant it can run vista (really badly run it) and vista capable premium meant it can run it well... simple eh?

If microsoft loses, we should all sue EA for saying crysis can be played on a 6600, when it plays with a 5fps framerate.
