Just because M$ is the equ of the 800 lb gorilla in the software business 
doesn't mean they work for anyone but M$, or act in a completely legal 
manner 100% of the time.  Anything they can say that has the  effect of 
protecting their turf can and will be said, and will be given ink by the 
suckers regardless of any moral or legal considerations most of the rest 
of us here on _these_ lists might consider as being reasons to be called 
decent human beings.
