    Bear, sure you can: “I will never trust Microsoft.” That’s one sentence. 🙂

    On a totally unrelated note, I see that Eric S. Raymond has joined the NRA. http://esr.ibiblio.org/?p=6965 (And Claire, you’re mentioned in passing in the comments.)

    “I will never tr-tr-trust… M… M..”

    Nope. Microsoft is simply incompatible with the concept of “tr-tr..”

    See?

    Microsoft effort to win back customers and at the same time toady up to the various government agencies is laughable at best. Maybe I am a tinfoil hat kinda guy however I think that none of the operating systems out there are trustworthy not even Linux. All operating systems should be treated as suspect. There are only 2 types of privacy failures, the ones we know about and the ones we don’t.

    As far as Clinton goes, it’s rich that she would use the help of her husband, the guy is such a sleaze. After he left office he used to visit the Magna Golf Club in Markham Ontario every 2 or 3 months where he had a private suite. Once there he used to meet with Belinda Stronach who was then a Member of Parliament. This “secret tryst” was widely known by members and employees of the golf club that her father owned. I only knew about it from some friends who worked security there.

    If I recall correctly, the NYT condemned the actions of the folks in Athens, Tn. back in 1946. Amazing how a paper has been so consistently biased against individual freedom for so long, yet still brings in enough to keep the lights on.

    Lies right out of the gate. If any internet business informs a survailence target they are being watch, people in that business go to jail if the US government is doing it.

    The only safety from your own government is to use a server under the jurisdiction of a hostile government. As long as you don’t torque off that government, they don’t care what you do.
