Well, it seems as if the tide has turned against Microsoft. On May 27, Amsterdam District Court ruled in favor of Lindows on all counts. In addition, the court ordered Microsoft to pay Lindows 944 Euros (that's about $1,160 in U.S. dollars) to cover Lindows' court costs during the litigation period.
To refreshen your memories about this whole mess, Lindows is the leading company in the field of desktop Linux operating systems, which recently changed its product name to Linspire. The litigation came about due to the company's original name - Lindows - which Microsoft claimed confused computer users with its desktop operating system, Windows.
The battle in the Netherlands and other overseas territories came after Lindows won battles with Microsoft right here in the states. But instead of taking its loss and moving on, Microsoft instead took these battles and continued them in countries overseas.
Lindows' victory is sweet - not for the money, of course, but rather for the return of the freedom of choice for computer operating systems. Up until the judgement, Microsoft was having Lindows fined daily for 100,000 Euros if anyone from the Benelux countries attempted to access or purchase Lindows products. Now folks in those regions can freely choose whichever OS they would prefer without fear or intimidation from the likes of Microsoft.
