Don't put it past them for a *second*. Now I'm not your typical "M$ hater" that
thinks its "k3w1" to "dis" Microsoft at every opportunity; I've been to Hell
(i.e. Windows Kernel Mode) and (barely) back, and I can say without equivocation
that such freakshows have only two causes:
1. Complete incompetence.
2. Intentional nefarious designs.
We know #1 is not true about MS; when they want to, they can get things right
(or thereabouts). And we know that Unix-on-Windows is not percieved as
conducive to whatever MS's "Final Solution" plans are; if it were, Window's
"POSIX subsystem" would be more than a joke. QED, we are left with #2.
Now, I'm off to wrap my head in aluminum foil so They can't read my thoughts.
