  • guestface67 - thanks for the feedback, though just I've mentioned before, these past actions aren't really representative of where we are today. I think it's likely that you will continue to find Microsoft making mistakes in this area, but in general we'd like to think that Microsoft is making progress in the right direction.

  • jza - Similar thing here; the Halloween documents were written back in 1998, by a few individuals. Today's Microsoft is different, and is mainly the purpose of my presentation to talk about where we are today.
