    Article is dated 1999 and discusses Windows 95?! Apparently it's getting
    harder for you to find materiel with which you can slander Microsoft.

    It was true back then, therefore, it is not slander. As for MS Incompetence,
    there will never be insufficient materiel (or material for that matter).

    It was only alleged and never shown to be an actual back door for the NSA.
    That makes it slander.

    If there is so much material to show Microsoft's incompentence why not post
    something a little more current?

    I think you need to stick to peddling *nix.
