As part of a suit over Microsoft's "Vista Capable" logo program, plaintiffs are seeking testimony from the former Windows chief and a number of major PC manufacturers.

After already unearthing some less-than-flattering e-mails, plaintiffs suing Microsoft over its "Vista Capable" logo program are seeking testimony from a number of computer makers and retailers as well as former Windows chief Jim Allchin.

According to a blog Tuesday by Todd Bishop of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the plaintiffs in the suit have subpoenaed Acer, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Sony, and Toshiba, along with retailers including Best Buy, Circuit City, Costco, OfficeMax, and Wal-Mart.
