This isn't strictly a Microsoft thing. Other companies and even independent developers of OSS have something similiar. I've seen it many times in the licenses where it will state "use at your own risk" or "Company is not responsible for any data loss, malfunctions, or harm caused by use of this software" or as simple as "the developer claims no responsibility".
