Microsoft From Bloomberg: "Microsoft, the world's largest software company, provides intelligence agencies with information about bugs in its popular software before it publicly releases a fix, according to two people familiar with the process. That information can be used to protect government computers and to access the computers of terrorists or military foes." The lid has officially been blown off.

government has a lot more to loose than you do if they are caught with an un-patched but exploited vulnerability.

Bullshit. My private data is more important for me then anything the government has (with exception of the copy of my private data NSA has maybe).

Windows is in use in by far more critical environments then those idiot NSA voyeurs.
