A federal judge today unsealed internal Microsoft e-mails that have been used to support the plaintiffs’ case in the lawsuit over the "Windows Vista Capable" program. …
For example, one February 2007 exchange (PDF, 17 pages)
started with an e-mail to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer from board member
Jon Shirley, who explained that he upgraded one of his computers to
Windows Vista only to find it was experiencing compatibility problems
with two of Microsoft’s own MSN applications.
Ballmer Shirley ha avuto problemi uando ha fatto il suo upgrade…
Shirley wasn’t upgrading
his other computer because of a lack of hardware drivers. As many early
Windows Vista users know, Shirley wasn’t the only one experiencing
those kinds of problems, especially in the initial months after release.
Il consigliere di amministrazione ha evitato di fare l’upgrade,,,
In addition to some of the previously reported excerpts — including
executive Mike Nash’s complaint that compatibility problems turned his
$2,100 PC into nothing more than an "email machine"
Un dirigente si lamentava che il suo PC da 2100 dollari al massimo era buono per mandare le mail.
Update, 4:45 p.m.: Many of the messages released today debate
the status of the Intel 915 chipset — which was given a Windows Vista
Capable designation despite not being able to run Aero glass and other
advanced Vista features. Microsoft executive John Kalkman gave more
background on that decision in a February 2007 e-mail to Scott Di
Valerio, then the executive in charge of Microsoft’s relations with
Il chipset 915 di Intel e’ stato classificato come adatto a Vista, anche se non lo era
In the end, we lowered the requirement to help Intel
make their quarterly earnings so they could continue to sell
motherboards with the 915 graphics embedded.
Abbiamo abbassato le specifiche per aiutare intel a raggiungere il budget di vendite del trimestre.
