Lindows Claim Site Under Fire

By Deane Barker on September 29, 2003

Microsoft, Lindows scrap over claims site: Microsoft is not happy about the site Lindows put up encouraging people to file recovery claims against Microsoft.

“Microsoft has demanded that Linux seller take down a Web site that offers to process customer claims from the settlement of a California class-action suit against the software giant.

In a letter sent to the Linux seller on Friday and reprinted in a Lindows announcement Monday, attorney Robert Rosenfeld said Lindows’ MSfreePC site includes false and misleading information and encourages filing of fraudulent claims. It demands that Lindows take down the site by noon Monday or face legal action by Microsoft.”
