Angry Vista Users File To Make Vista Capable Lawsuit A Class Action Again

Just when you thought Microsoft was going to catch a break, comes the news that the Plaintiffs in the Vista Capable lawsuit have filed to have it reinstated as a class action:

Initially, the class included anyone who bought Windows Vista Capable PCs. Now plaintiffs are asking the judge to certify the class based on two subgroups: Those who participated in a Vista upgrade program and those who purchased Vista Capable PCs that could not support a specific driver, which plaintiffs say is essential to run Vista.

This is an interesting legal tactic. Narrow the focus so that the court has little choice but to accept class action status. The question is, will it succeed?
