Internal emails prove Microsoft lowered Vista standards for Intel"The real issue is Intel does not have parts to support the April timeframe." Remember the class-action lawsuit over Vista Capable PCs that lack the graphics power to run Vista's Aero interface? TechFlash has published the 29-page court document with Microsoft's internal emails. Intel CEO Paul Otellini personally intervened to convince Microsoft to lower the standards so that an entire generation of underpowered, non-upgradable PCs would be deemed Vista Capable. I know — I bought one. Microsoft computer science guy Jim Allchin was "apoplectic" over the appallingly bad idea. But Digg users never explode in rage at Intel. Once again Redmond's brightest, hardest-working tech leaders have stabbed themselves in the face.
