    Theyll never do it.... Microsoft will get out of giving them the code somehow, Or if they do give them the code, theres an easyay to check if its the real code... Compile it and run it, if it runs smoothly.... Its not the real code

    I'm still laughing at it !!!!!

    another thing suppose they do,
    immagine you'd be in a position to release that source code to the web (legally or not...) would that risk be worth it ?
    i mean, what if you have to do something illegal to proof that ms is violating the anitrust laws; plus a magnificient pay back to poor bill (i'm drewling just at the idea of windows open
    code ...hehehe)
    how tempting and would that be worht it ?
    assembly.... digital dna ?
