Just FYI, Microsoft is dating "The Man" and has been since the late 1990's at least. Not that it really matters, I just have a bug up my arse when it comes to "The Man"... 8-)
You sound sweet, and a bit naive. Why would they help "animals" from the goodness of their hearts after they have totally screwed over their customer base? There might be a good reason, but me thinks it's probably more nefarious in nature.
If you're talking about the back-door access they built in to their Operating Systems since the late 90's, yes, I realize they have done it to every O.S they came out with since prob Win ME or Win '98. I realize they are not the only culprits that do this, but they are most likely the first to do it in the way they did.
