Ballmer Ordered To Testify in "Vista-Capable" Case [pcworld.com]
A federal judge in Seattle has ordered Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer to testify in a class action lawsuit against Microsoft that alleges the company misled consumers in a marketing campaign for its Windows Vista operating system in which computers sold with an older Microsoft OS were labeled 'Vista Capable' when in fact they could only run a basic version of Vista.

Ballmer has unique personal knowledge of facts surrounding the case, therefore he must face questioning, Judge Marsha Pechman of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington at Seattle ruled, according to court documents released late Friday.

Most of the comments below the article are dismissive of the law suit and I agree with them.

I bought a laptop about ten months before Vista was released. I knew perfectly well that it would not run aero because I did my research, but I absolutely needed a new laptop right away and wasn't prepared to pay a premium for features I didn't need at the time. I later bought another laptop for testing that runs aero - I'm using it to write this but it's running XP!
