Microsoft made the Vista "experience" bad on purpose to help Intel sell older chipsets

I wasn't really paying attention to the Vista Capable lawsuit as it had no effect on me, but this article popped up on the radar this morning, and there is some pretty damning email trails from MS execs, including this shocker:

You can read through the whole article, but Engadget has a good summary.

One word version: damning.
