Microsoft claws at Lindows threat

ZDNet reports: "Microsoft has asked a Seattle court to reconsider a strongly worded ruling, issued in March, that Windows is a generic term and that it doesn't have exclusive rights to the name.

The ruling was issued in response to Microsoft's attempts to stop a company that is building a GNU/Linux-based operating system from using the terms Lindows.com (its name) and LindowsOS (the name of its forthcoming operating system). LindowsOS, due to be released later this year, will run Windows applications, according to Lindows.com."
