Privacy groups fight to delay Windows XP release
Author: JT Smith
Kelly McNeill writes "A group of privacy organizations seeking U.S. government intervention represents the latest obstacle to software giant Microsoft's releasing its controversial new operating system, Windows XP. The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), along with anti-spam firm Junkbusters, the Privacy Foundation and other advocacy groups, will ask the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to halt the scheduled October 25th release of Windows XP while key components of the software are investigated."
