Hmm so another opening for anti social digital kings to provide enough 
security gaps for terrorists etc to work with.
Digital technology is good, but should an un-transparent technology be 
excepted at the cost of peoples personal security and should we give 
away our privacy to some one whom we cant even trust?

So again we can see the parasitic nature of microsoft.  Like paracites, 
they will suck out all the talent, then make proprietory technologies 
and sell it back to those same students or so-called researchers.  And 
guess who will hold all the rights for our own inovations?
