Microsoft Legal Is Not Amused

Mary Jo Foley

Microsoft seemingly isn’t amused with Lindows.com’s stunt to “help Microsoft customers process their claims” from the $1.1 billion class-action settlement with California. The kingpin of software settlement sent a letter to Lindows.com requesting the Linux vendor take down its MsfreePC notice. Microsoft is claiming that Lindows.com is encouraging individuals to submit fraudulent claims. Lindows.com is offering certain claimants free Linux software and hardware for submitting claim forms.
