Lindows muscles in on Microsoft $1 billion settlement

LINDOWS CEO Michael Robertson is working hard to earn the number one spot in the Microsoft foes to destroy list at the Vole's HQ in Redmondia.

The company announced the "MSfreePC" program (, described as "a web service designed to help Microsoft customers process their settlement claims from the $1.1 billion settlement Microsoft has agreed to pay." The deal sounds enticing on the face of it. "You may be eligible for a FREE PC and allowed to purchase up to $100 worth of software paid for by Microsoft!", it reads.

That refers to a settlement reached earlier this year, after a California court ordered the Vole to pay up to $1100 millon greenbacks to consumers, over a five-year period, due to Microsoft's practice of overcharging for Windows.
