    Incredible. Now, how twisted do you have to be psychologically to think that writing a virus is social commentary?

    So twisted you see straight.
    Mankind have a great aversion to intellectual labor; but even supposing knowledge to be easily attainable, more people would be content to be ignorant than would take even a little trouble to acquire it.

    ROFL... at least it wasn't released into the wild, but I still find that a very bizarre excuse for virus-writing.

    As for the Microsoft one... I read it before and I'm still confused who's speaking about what and why.
    "I couldn't do what you've got here," said Allchin, suffering from a severe cold. "Forget about any business thing. Technically I just couldn't do it."

    Allchin said the company has done no studies to see if it could be done.
    What's he saying? At first glance it looks like he's saying that you can't (technically) remove the browser from the OS, and in the next he's saying no studies were done? I don't get it.
