    A lawsuit against Microsoft may seem outlandish, but it expresses a not-uncommon user complaint.

    Filed this month by a “Frank K. Dickman Jr.” of Albuquerque, N.M., the lawsuit seeks damages of $600 million from Microsoft and its CEO Satya Nadella.
    The plaintiff’s PC, an Asus laptop, came loaded with Windows 7, but then became “non-functional immediately” when the upgrade to Windows 10 failed, according to the complaint filed in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado earlier this month.
    The upgrade “deleted the cached, or backup, version of Windows 7,” the complaint states.

    “The only sensible remedy is for Microsoft to supply the OEM version of its operating system by download from its website and confirmed by the key code which came with the computer,” the filing notes.

    The owner is demanding that Microsoft supply the Windows 7 operating system because “the only way I can be certain of a quality Windows 7 Operating System is to obtain it from the original vendor – Microsoft Corporation.”

    yeah, hate those kind of people who sue for shitload of money.

    Hope he loses the case and waste all the time and money for it. Shame.

    MS always have their asses covered. They have expert legal teams to look at every angle and loophole when they write up the user agreement. Frank 'Dickman' probably has a snowballs chance in hell of getting anywhere with his lawsuit.

    Wasn't there a woman who sued M$ for wrecking her Windows 7 computer that she used for her business by having Windows 10 forced onto her PC without her permission or knowledge? Think she took them to a small claims court where lawyers can't attend?

    I didn't know Asus made a laptop worth 600 million dollars. In fact I think that man got majorly ripped off when he bought his laptop and paid that much. But that's hardly Microsoft's fault.

    Meanwhile in the W10 new Cumulative Update notes you can read the following:
    "After installing this update, some devices may fail to start, and return INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE"

    I would't mind any damages if they simply fix dwm.exe crash on boot with Sandy Bridge iGPU.

    he isnt going to win. he doesnt have a lawyer. he is representing himself. there are mistypes on the lawsuit papers.

    he thinks asus upgraded the laptop to windows 10. which is why he says he doesnt trust asus. wants microsoft to give him with an oem disk. which they dont have windows 7 oem disk.

    if they did give him a windows 7 disk. it isnt going to have the asus drivers for the laptop.


    this guy is totally backwards in life.

    also had amount sued written wrong.
    so one part of the lawsuit paper says 6 million but then another part has 3 extra zeros making it 6 billion
