It seems our wonderful and wise government is unhappy with Microsoft, as the new Windows Vista operating system is too secure. Its so secure they can't get into it through back doors and such, in order to snoop on its citizens, so the government is requesting Microsoft make it less secure in order to provide the government with means to spy on its citizens. WTF? Evil or Very Mad

That's just dumb. By manually coding in a backdoor that just means it'll be exploited in a matter of days by hackers who'll use it to steal credit card info, steal identities and do lots of other nasty things and MS will be legally prevented from patching it.

If they were that bothered about stopping terrorists from keeping data secret then they should target proprietry file formats and all this "trusted computing" stuff going on.
