Microsoft sues a retailer for something every home user can do?

Seriously?  How is creation of restore disks — an activity WINDOWS itself helps you do for free — copyright infringement?  I hate the fact that OEMs have gotten away from deliverying physical restore media with new hardware, and instead are utilizing space on my hard drive for that purpose.  For two reason.  First, it’s cheap and don’t mistake for a moment that the OEMs are doing it for any other reason than as a means of cost reduction and increased profitibility on their part.  But secondly what happens if that hard drive fails.  You betcha!  You lose your means of restore.  Unless of course you make your own restore media, which Windows itself recommends.  Microsoft’s action is simply another example of how out of touch they are with reality.
