Microsoft Changed Vista Rules for Intel, E-Mail Says

"Feb. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Microsoft Corp. bowed to pressure from partner Intel Corp. to certify some chips as capable of running the Windows Vista operating system to help Intel meet earnings estimates, a Microsoft executive said.

The decision was made over the objection of some Microsoft officials, who expressed concern that Intel's 915 chipset wasn't capable of properly displaying Vista's graphics features, according to e-mails released Feb. 27 that were introduced as evidence in a federal case in Seattle."
