    DETROIT (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp. Chief Executive Steve Ballmer on Friday said a complaint lodged by Google Inc. was "baseless" as the software company was complying with a 2002 antitrust settlement.

    In a complaint filed with the Department of Justice in December, Google said a feature built into Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system that allows users to search a computer's hard drive did not leave room for competition from other desktop search applications.

    It's a windows operating system, not a windows system for other companies to do things in. This is rediculous.

    Absurd. Why the fudge would MS not be able to include a good search tool? Google is getting more annoying by the day.
