Well, it looks like *somebody* has learned a lesson. According to the folks at Microsoft watch, the Justice Department is overseeing the development of “Windows 7”, which is the version that’s supposed to replace the disaster everybody loves to call veeesta.
This government sanctioned “Technical Committee” is overseeing Windows development and make certain that Microsoft complies with the terms of the November 2001 Justice Department settlement with Microsoft and the final court judgment that was issued a year later.
They’ll be investigating any complaints about Microsoft abuses and making regular reports on their compliance.
