Google Complaint Prompts Change in Vista

The giants butt heads again, with Microsoft grudgingly agreeing to change how default search is set up in Vista after the Justice Department sided with Google over an antitrust complaint. The grounds — that the current setup limits alternative desktop search engines — may sound a little funny from a company earning their own antitrust accusations, but Microsoft’s reputation (and 2002 antitrust settlement) continues to haunt them and they appear to have lost yet a little more ground to their behemothic competitor.

Using Vista? Expect a patch or service pack addressing the search feature to be available by year’s end.
