Difference between a suite (like of s/w) and suit (like a patent lawsuit)

There's a typo in this article about Trolltech unifying the Linux development stack on smartphones (also including a unified Java ME MIDP implementation). Yeah, finally.

See:

Find the typo in this Trolltech Linux on Smartphones article

Here's a quote:

 The suit [sic] also includes 
 WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) 
 and HTML browsers, messaging 
 software, video and audio recording 
 capabilities, DRM (digital rights 
 management), 3D graphics, video 
 telephony, VOIP (voice over IP) 
 support, a VPN (Virtual Private 
 Network) client and Java MIDP 
 (Mobile Information Device Profile).
When I first read this, I thought there was a Patent Infringement Lawsuit that somehow included Java MIDP! :-O Ahhhh!!! But, nooooooo, the author typed "suit" when she meant "suite", as in Trolltech's "Greensuite" Linux development software for smartphones. Oh, that's different. Nevermind. Just goes to show ya, spellcheck will only getcha so far before you have to actually think for yourself. :-)

I wonder what a Trolltech Green Suit would look like... Probably long in the tail...
