Microsoft in trouble again...

I have to admit that I'm almost sorry for the Redmond Gang. I'd say that it's near impossible to write a program that some other person can't abuse and operating systems are at the top of that heap. Microsoft is a bigger target than anyone else simply because Windows is so widespread. I also think that the constant load of lawsuits is their own fault. I'm quite sure that if they had shown a different attitude over the years in customer relations and the EULA's they've done their best to shove down our throats, then they'd be facing a lot less criticism.
