“Google Inc. still hopes to influence changes that Microsoft Corp. plans to make in Vista’s desktop search function, even after the parties involved in Microsoft’s 2002 antitrust settlement agreed to alterations to the search system.On Monday, in response to Microsoft’s opposition to an earlier request, Google asked that the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia allow it to weigh in as an interested party regarding the way the search function should be changed. The filing comes two weeks after Microsoft and the plaintiffs in the antitrust suit said that they had worked together and agreed to changes.”
