That's  like  expecting  the bloke who had just hijacked a  car  to  drive
safely.  As we all know, many stolen cars wind up going up the highway  at
200  KM  per  hour (police chases) or stuck in a tree  (sometimes  killing
innocent bystanders in the process).

The  shady  past  of Microsoft makes it a lose-lose  situation  for  them.
Hence,  their consciousness, integrity and morals are as as high as  their
stock, as of yesterday:


For that reason, crooks must be driven to jail before they commit the next
crime.  Shady  past  gives little incentive (if any at all)  for  improved
