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.

This was highly expected and it's not a problem related to Microsoft only. Do you think that Google keeps their data off of NSA? Yeah, sure.

The big push in Europe about open-source mostly derives from all these problems. Same applies to other countries like China which obtained to get a special version of Windows (and I bet such version won't include any NSA backdoor plus a China govt backdoor).
