Windows Microsoft is planning to make RFID applications and tag-readers compatible with Windows. According to Scott Woodgate, group product manager of business processes for Microsoft, the company is trying to integrate RFID programs with the operating system and make the majority of devices work with plug-and-play functionality.

This can be another way that MS can try to track customer use. That can amount and be seen as privacy evasion, MS is not beyond doing this to make a buck.

Given our current climate where our freedoms in the USA have been taken away, this is very possible under the guise of homeland security. All of course IMHO.
