Microsoft Settles Claims

Well, I just got my check from Microsoft’s settlement administrator… did you get yours? Thought it may be interesting for those of you who use Microsoft Windows that they have officially settled the class action suit against them and have sent out checks to people who purchased Widows from their website between November 10, 1995 and April 30th 2003.

The check was for $104.86 and it followed several communications from the filers over the last few months. To get this settlement, you had to purchase DIRECTLY from Microsoft. Mine was for a Windows XP upgrade (total cost $190.31 at the time).

If you think you might have a claim, contact the Microsoft Settlement Administrator at P.O. Box 1677, Faribault, MN 55021-1677 or call them at 1-877-576-9979.

The deadline for brining up additional claims or disputing the amount received by telephone or mail is October 26, 2004. So hurry!

Ok, that’s my good deed for the day!
