Vista Search slows down other Engines

Mircosoft have conceded that their ‘Volish’ search tool slowed down competing programs such as Google’s Desktop. Google filed a complaint with the Justice Department and Microsoft have now agreed to make changes to Vista.

The Vole dismissed the allegations, saying regulators had reviewed the program before Vista launched. According to AP, the Vole seems to have changed its mind.

A DoJ report said that Microsoft will let PC users and manufacturers like Dell set a non-Microsoft program such as Google Desktop as the default. Microsoft will also add a link to that alternate program in the Windows Start menu.

Microsoft has also agreed to give competitors technical information to help improve their performance on Vista.

The changes will be in the first service pack for Vista at the end of the year.
