Microsoft's top lawyer said Thursday that he is happy with the information the company provided about its Vista operating system, and its compatibility with existing PCs, ahead of the software's launch in January this year.

Last week, a class-action lawsuit was brought against the software maker claiming it unfairly labeled some PCs "Windows Vista Capable" when they could only run the most basic version of the operating system and not support more advanced versions that offer some of the most heavily-promoted features such as media center and advanced graphics.
