Windows Earlier this week, a senior National Security Agency official told US Congress that the NSA had worked on Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows 7. This spurred a flurry of rumours about the NSA building backdoors into Windows 7, but Microsoft has today categorically denied these claims.

It's news that Microsoft consulted with the NSA on Win7. The denial is not the news; the consulting is. I might live under a rock, but I didn't know there was any such government involvement.

I'm happy with Windows, and I welcome this kind of transparency, whether or not there is any such "backdoor."
