Re: Some legal trouble with TOR in France

Some angry users aren't going to stop Microsoft from obeying the government. When the government orders something to be done, it gets done, regardless of how many people ask for it. I know the win2k source got leaked a while back, did anybody conduct a formal review of it?

and it should be pointed out that microsoft has already been roasted
publicly for putting a government key into some version of windows, i
can't remember which, they've done it once, i doubt they'd dare to do
it again though because people know they did it and would be looking
for evidence of it now.
