How many Windows PCs does the US government spy on using the back doors from
Microsoft (shelling out $300 to turn your fine hardware into the property of
spies overseas)? One has to wonder...

What qualifies as a 'terrorist'? So the US government is fully authorized to do
the PC equivalent of a surgical examination of over a million PCs. In the name
of 'the war on terrorism'... those who are probed are not even aware of it.
Ripe for abuse, surely to be misused.

Another reason to bury Windows and an explanation for cybercrime, which takes
advantage of back doors (so does the FBI).
