Concious decision? So you are in the Microsoft meetings? Do
tell...didn't think so. They may have known about it, but many huge
companies have security problems in their software..some are so embedded
in the system or related to how the program work..that they will do
anything to protect it. 

Why didn't this get thrown up with the Cisco/Lynn outcry? Oh...because
hitting on Microsoft gets you more attention perhaps...
