    Oh HELL no...even if I trusted them to make a policy that adequately protected my data, which I simply, fundamentally do not, NO WAY would I trust the underpaid, abused, go-postal-waiting-to-happen employess to actually FOLLOW that policy and keep out of my shit.

    If they seriously push this, it could be the end of Microsoft's lead in both home and business sectors.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.
