Vista, Vista and More Vista

One of our sister publications is Visual Studio Magazine (if you care about development, check it out here), and its editor in chief, Patrick Meader, recently told me about a couple of "Vista software" sites that have little to do with Microsoft.

Vista Software Inc. sells a database engine that works with Clipper, FoxPro and other DBMSs. Meanwhile, another Vista Software Inc., this one from Tucson, Ariz., sells a souped-up automation system for Microsoft applications, kinda like macros on steroids.

Got that? Now, who's going to sue whom over all this?
