A Swedish court has temporarily blocked the distribution of Lindows software in the country, pending a ruling on Microsoft's claim that the company's name violates its Windows trademark.

Magistrate Ulrika Carlehall of Stockholm City Court said in her ruling that Microsoft has shown probable cause for trademark infringement and therefore may suffer further damage if products with the Lindows name continue to be sold in Sweden. She set a fine of $3m if Lindows fails to comply with the injunction.

Lindows sells a version of the open source Linux operating system with an interface that resembles Microsoft's Windows. Microsoft sued the company for alleged infringement of its US trademark shortly after Lindows opened for business, with a trial set for March. As previously reported, Microsoft recently expanded the trademark battle to Europe.

In the grand scheme of things, the swastika is a very old Sanskrit symbol. It was in 1919 in Germany when the demonization of the swastika began. check out this link for a history lesson. Hitler murdered over six million under that symbol. How many millions over history have been murdered in the crusades under the a regular old cross? So their making a deal over a couple of icons? Perhaps they should consider removing a few more if they remove those two. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a Nazi wanna-be or any thing close, but fair is fair. You take one out, maybe they should take out others.

Yeah, Right, Blah, Blah, Blah.
