Microsoft Sued Once Again... But then again, what else is new?

Once again, Microsoft is in hot water. This time, they are a defendant in a class-action lawsuit related to their implementation of Windows Genuine Advantage, or WGA, in order to gather data on a user's computer to determine whether the installed version of Windows is legitimate.

Per the lawsuit, the implementation violates consumer protection laws in two states. More information can be found here.

NOTE TO MICROSOFT: Stop being sneaky and paranoid. These problems could be avoided if you would open source Windows (yeah, right...)
