Microsoft of America

Interesting.... the United States National Security Agency has been collaborating with MicroSoft on their Operating Systems since Windows 98 days... including Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. The NSA says, it is just using its

"unique expertise and operational knowledge of system threats and vulnerabilities to enhance Microsoft's operating system security guide".

Of course people are concerned that the NSA is building back doors into everyone's computer for data gathering. I'm not worried about that... I'm just shocked that the NSA would admit it had a hand in Microsoft's security -- I mean, all these OS's are riddled with holes and fried full of viruses and spyware and they can't hardly function unless you buy additional software to keep them clean. This is our NSA? Yikes!
