How people come out to defend Microsoft so fanatically as if the company had never done anything wrong, as if they couldn't possibly do anything wrong. You'd think we haven't been discussing Microsoft's tactics for years.

Guess what? Just cause it didn't happen to you doesn't mean it didn't happen to anyone else, and since you probably haven't seen the Windows source code, you can't fully know what's going on in there anyway. Stop feeling sorry for MS already.
