Segment Two- WindowsRefund.Net- Two cases show
progress has started
Tonight on the show we will be joined by Adam Kosmin of windowsrefund.net.
Adam is in the process of filing a complaint against Toshiba
America Information Systems with the NY State Attorney General\'s
office. This is the second such effort by members of this upstart
groups attempts at forcing Microsoft and the rest of the IT
industry to observe the legal right of a buyer to unbundle PCs and
bundled software and ask for a refund. Take a look at this Linux Journal
coverage for details of the court ruling.
Previously Walt Pennington, also of WindowsRefund.Net filed suit
against HP and Microsoft. Although both of these efforts have
yielded no results, more cases are needed to show the courts and
halls of congress how Micorsoft is still acting like the 800 pound
gorilla that they are.
