Interesting thread !

Even MORE interesting is that Microsoft got MUCH better marks on this, just a handful of years ago.

What I'd like to know is why M$ has let things slip so far, so soon ?

They could have turned this into a money maker, if they'd kept their noses to the grindstone.

They have been looking for a subscription-based 'foot-in-the-door' to people's wallets, and this might have been it.

Hmmmm....
