Ballmer Called to Testify in 'Vista Capable' Case

Microsoft chief honcho Steve Ballmer has been called to testify in the class action “vista capable” suit being heard in Washington state. It’s a classic tech case of marketing verses technical realities and who knew what, when – we’ve seen it before. A number of companies had expressed concerns about the Vista roll-out including HP, Sony and Intel. Spokespeople for Ballmer say that it was underlings who knew the issues best and handled the troubles and that Steve was not directly involved with operational decisions.
